Mark Heckles ran away with the Brands Hatch round of the European Superstock Championship today. For the second round running the dominance of the Suzuki GSX-R1000 was broken, this time by the superfast Rumi Honda Fireblade and rider Heckles' sheer determination. Championship leader James Ellison couldn't hold off a late challenge from rival Walter Tortoroglio. Ellison slipped<BR>back to third when Tortoroglio passed him at Hawthorn Bend. The Italian reduced reigning Champion Ellison's points lead from 10 to 6 points.<BR><BR>Race Result:<BR><BR>1. Mark Heckles, GBR, Honda, 22:59.554<BR>2.
