SR75 World Team's Suzuki Thomas Ramette raced his RM-Z450 to victory in round three of this year's Arenacross series in Birmingham, with his teammate, Cyrille Coulon claiming second place.

The three-time champion was back to winning ways after a tough night at the previous round, where a tough block cover tangled with his rear brake, causing a crash. But the French ace was able to put that disappointment behind him and get his championship challenge back on track, and is now only six points off the series lead, and one point behind his teammate, Coulon.

Ramette eased through his heat races, finishing second in heat one, before taking the win in heat two, with Coulon second. Team FRO Systems Suzuki's Cedric Soubeyras made it an RM-Z450 lockout on the podium. Coulon also took another runner up spot in his opening heat race, finishing behind the Suzuki of Soubeyras.

Ramette also added to his championship points tally by setting the fastest time in the Hot Lap shootout.

In the main event Ramette led every lap to take a well deserved victory, while Coulon took another second placed finish, the SR75 World Team duo finishing way ahead of the chasing pack.

Team boss, Geoff Walker, commented, "The guys were amazing. The crew did a great job, the bikes were superb, and it's great to get back to winning and get a 1-2. Big thanks to everyone who supports us."
