Lexelle-sponsored Tarran Mackenzie ended his Red Bull Rookies Championship campaign on a high by equaling his best result.

The 17-year-old produced a ninth place finish at Aragon in Spain and is now focussing on the final races of the Monster Energy Motostar Championship.

Tarran said:  “Once again I messed up in qualifying back in 19th so gave myself a lot of work to do in the races.

“In Saturdays’ race I came through the field finishing 16th but only a second of 12th position.

“My start  in the second race on Sunday was much better so after getting to 13th on lap one I got my head down a kept passing riders right up until the chequered flag.  The temperature over the weekend was around 33 degrees so it was a tough event but my fitness was good.  An added bonus was being the fastest rider on the track on the last lap.

“It is Silverstone BSB this next weekend so I can wait to take on my British Championship rivals!”

Tarran is currently 36 points behind championship leader Joe Francis with two events remaining.
