Hitchin motorcyclist Colin Parker had a fantastic weekend of racing at a frosty and wet Lydden Hill race circuit.
Despite the unfriendly weather conditions, Colin secured a firm place on the podium in both races on Saturday.
His achievement of third place in the first race was bettered by a win in the second race.
Despite the damp circuit, Colin managed to bring his 2005 Yamaha R1 home with a full five-second clear lead, having lapped half the field.

Sunday's results were not to be sniffed at either as he took to the podium again with a second place finish in the first race. During the final race of the weekend, Colin crossed the line in fourth.
These results, coupled with his good results at the first round at Brands Hatch, have given Colin even more confidence as he prepares himself and his R1 for the opening round of the Superstock Cup, which runs as part of the British Superbike Series. This race will take place at Brands Hatch on Easter Monday.

Colin said: "After my good results at Brands Hatch a couple of weeks ago, and now my podiums at Lydden, it has given me a confidence boost before entering the Superstock Cup race. My bike is old in comparison to most in the British Superbike Series and I wasn't sure how it would hold up, but recent races have gone well and I'm really pleased with the results. I'm now looking forward to the British Superbikes weekend."
