Mickie Simpson rode top seven consecutive race wins in a junior grasstrack meeting at Iwade, Kent.

Of the 11 riders in action, the Boston Grammar School pupil was the stand-out performer, despite being on a track smaller and bumpier than he is used to.

Mickie rode to six convincing heat wins with Camron Taylor - who finished second overall leading mickie for a lap and half before Mickie got past to take the win.

After the six heats a handicap was run for the top six riders.

The lowest points rider in the heats sets of first and the highest points rider set off last.

Despite being the last to start this six-lap event, Mickie came through for his seventh win of the day.
