In the combined free practice, his times put him in first place overall.

He failed to finish the first race but put that behind him for a superb second race.

Reflecting on the first race, he said: “I ended up having to detour the long section of the lap after I had nowhere to go, which set me back about a few seconds. compared to the leading group I had raced with.”

On race two, Rhys added: “Race two was brilliant.

“What a great race day, starting third on the grid I was really hoping for my first podium, especially after the rest on Sunday.

“I had a good frame of mind and entered the race with a different strategy.

“I was hoping to take the lead and get away from the peloton, but the other riders had other ideas, but we had some really good battles throughout.

“I’m so happy to bring home my first silverware from the Honda British Talent Cup and the BSB – it’s not quite on board yet.”
