Marks Bloom Racing's Daniel Kneen took second place in the Fuchs-Silkolene Supersport Cup championship at the weekend's final round at Oulton Park in Cheshire.
The Braddan rider went into the weekend joint-second in the series and only two points behind the leader.
But after bike problems that hindered his qualifying session and a difficult race he claimed second overall.
Dan has stood on the podium five times this season, including two wins, in addition to scoring main championship points at four of the rounds.
At present no plans for next year have been made but he definitely aims to return to the BSB paddock in 2011.
Meanwhile, Dan has a confirmed ride with the Superstock 1000 BMW of DMR ( Duffus, Morrison Racing) at the Macau GP which takes place November 18-21.
He says, "It will be good, a first trip for me, it will be a good experience and I am looking forward to it."
He will also represent the Isle of Man team at the Celtic Match Races at Jurby Airfield on October 23 and 24.
