In Friday’s free practice, Tolliday clocked a time of 1: 47.0 in FP1 for 18th position and 1: 45.4 in FP2 for 19th position.

Qualifying on Saturday was a tricky session with a wet track starting to dry around the middle of the session but not dry enough so those with intermediate tires were in an ideal situation.

The Cayton runner clocked 1: 54.5 for 19th place.

Tolliday had a bad exit from the line in the sprint race, but was quite aggressive in the first corner.

He lost contact with the guys in front after a few laps but had a good fight until the last lap to finish 14th in his class.

Tolliday, who started 17th, got off to a good start in Sunday’s Feature Race and regained a few places at the start, but they were quickly conceded to the fastest guys in the race.

He said: “It was really a solid weekend, especially compared to the last time we were at Oulton Park.”
