Lyng's Ian Thomson was the star of the show at Swaffham Raceway on Sunday.
The current points leader won all three races in the Thunder Rods to firmly establish his position at the top.
He was made to work hard for his wins though, his margin of victory in his first race couldn't have been slimmer as he pipped Darren Wells (Potter Heigham) on the finish line.
In the formula's final he held off the challenges of Steve Copland (Norwich) and Kings Lynn's Danny Day to secure his impressive treble.
