Swindon’s Max Cook won the Aprilia Nitro Newcomers Championship at the weekend after another sensational performance in the latest round of the Aprilia Superteens Championship.

As well as clinching the Nitro Newcomers title, the youngster’s four wins in Anglesey, Wales, also saw him move just eight points away from winning the overall Superteen crown.

A delighted Cook said: “I am really proud that after my last race I managed to secure the Aprilia Nitro Newcomers Championship for 2015.

“I’m eight points from securing the overall Supeteen Championship so I am really looking forward to Donnington at the end of Sept.”

Cook has now scored 562 points this season a total which leaves his rivals in his wake with second-placed Freddie Craine some way back on 357 points.

Race one in Anglesey saw Cook start on pole position after securing first place on the grid by over two seconds.

Racing with the number 130 in a tribute to his grandfather, who also used to race, he led the race from the start to finish.

Cook eventually finished over 18 seconds ahead of his nearest rival, Harry Philips, who finished second while Championship rival Craine was another four seconds back in third.

In race two, Cook dominated proceedings once again, eventually coming home some 17 seconds ahead of Craine in second with Alex Wood in third.

Cook notched a hat-trick of wins in race three, this time finishing over 21 seconds ahead of Wood while Craine finished third

Race four saw Cook complete a clean sweep of victories in Wales as the Swindon speedster romped to a 19-second victory from Jack Scott and Atkins.

Cook will return to action at Donnington Park on September 25th where he will look to add the Superteen title.
