Conway makes it a double

The newly-crowned champion made a perfect start from pole and quickly opened out a comfortable cushion to his Double R team-mate Bruno Senna.

The Brazilian had no answer to the Briton, but was equally secure in his second place ahead of Oliver Jarvis.

Jarvis was third by the first corner, having started very well from fifth. Yelmer Buurman (Fortec Motorsport) claimed fourth place, which he held to the flag.

The Dutchman came under early attack from Stephen Jelley (Double R) but Jelley outbraked himself in an attempted pass and spun out of contention at Abbey.

Cristiano Morgado (Fluid Motorsport) was also a double winner, taking National Class honours. Rodolfo Gonzalez (T-Sport) crashed on the first lap.
