After starting Race 1 late on Saturday following rain delays, Waters was soon moving through the field from 16th position off the grid. Within the short 7 laps he finished the race in an amazing 5th place against some of the top riders in the country.  With a progressive grid; Waters 5th Place finish in Race 1 saw him start Race 2 from 5th place. Waters was again chasing the leaders however a minor incident on the second lap saw him fall to the rear of the field.  A great recovery saw his lap times matching those of the leaders as he made his way back to 19th Place.

Eager to improve on his results from Saturday, Sunday saw Waters again competing with the top Superbike riders in the field. A consistent weekend saw Waters finish with a 5th place in Race 1, 4th place in Race 2 and 5th place in Race 3, achieving his best lap times of the weekend and giving him an overall placing of 5th for the round.
