DEANE Brown scored a point on his debut for Northwich team Opus Energy Brabus Racing during Sunday’s Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship race at Thruxton.

The 21-year-old, a replacement for James East on the outfit’s Kawasaki, passed two rivals on the last lap to finish 15th.

Brown will be hoping for a repeat in the next race at Oulton Park this weekend.
