Timmy Young placed ahead of Kenny Gilbert (Proudly Bidvest Yamaha) who rounded off the E1 podium and finished fourth overall. The battle for the E1 Championship will go down to the wire as Gilbert is now leading this championship standings with only two points separating him from second-placed De Wet.
