The Derbyshire lad also admitted to having one eye on the championship in future rounds, after opening out a 30-point advantage with his victory this afternoon.

"It was fantastic, to get pole position, lap record and the win, you've got to be happy. I lead from the front so it was a bit of a lonely race but I felt really good. The pace wasn't fantastic so I just tried to stay consistent, count down the laps and race my pit board," said Lowes, speaking to bikesportnews.com after the race.

"I was capable of giving a little bit more, running a couple of tenths quicker but you know, if it was a battle it probably could of been different. If I'd have pushed on further, the problem is I could have crashed and lost valuable points so I just had to bring it home.

"It was a different race, winning in a different way but great in the end. My aim this year is to win the championship so I've got to think about it a little bit now. I know I can't win every race but I've got to start the weekend trying to win. If one weekend fifth is all I can do, I'll just have to take that but hopefully we'll be there come the end of the year.
