Racing in the eighth and final round of the Scottish Quad Bike Racing Championships at the Langton Lees Farm motocross track near Duns, Michael Brewis fought off his biggest rival Barry Main to secure the Adult Support Championship class.

There was a good turnout at the event with big classes from age five upwards and both the adult championship and the support class outcomes hinged on results on the day.

In the championship class John Mitchell, from Stornoway, managed to secure enough points to win the title of Scottish Champion and earn himself a very handy 1500.

In the support class Brewis won two out of his three races, plus a second, which gave him an overall first for the day and saw him lift the Scottish Support Championship for 2010.

This overall win was his third of the season, the others having come in the first round, in Duns in March, and at Lanark in June.

Michael's other results were three seconds (Cardenden, Rynie and Leuchars) and a third (Buchan). One round at the double-header in Rynie in Aberdeenshire was cancelled due to weather.

The weather at Duns remained good all day with the track even needing watered in the middle of the afternoon to keep dust down for safety.
