Round four of the Triumph Triple Challenge was held on the Snetterton 300 Circuit in Norfolk and saw Chichester rider Robert Goodall competing on his Brit Racing-run Triumph.

Qualifying saw him place the bike 18th on the grid for race one. He got off to an amazing start as the lights went green for the first of ten laps.

As the race progressed he showed pure determination and grit against those more experienced around him as he started to progress up through the field. There were a few issues with the bike but this did not stop Goodall moving up the places. He took the chequered flag in 15th place along with more well-deserved points.

Race two saw him start again from 18th, and once again as the lights went green he was off to a flying start. With the laps going by, Goodall maintained position for the majority of the race but he started to drop back through the field in the closing stages, with the issues from race one returning.

For race three he started from 22nd. Once again he got a good start staying with the pack, but even with his determination it was going to hard from that far back to make up many places. He finally took the chequered flag in 21st.

Goodall is 15th with in the championship standings on 21 points. He will be in action again in a few weeks at Brands Hatch.
