Brands BSB: Irwin 'fully believes' he will be in title scrap

Be Wiser Ducati's Glenn Irwin fully believes he will be in the fight for the Bennetts British Superbike title when the series returns to Brands Hatch for a third time at the end of this season.

The Carrickfergus rider took a brace of second places behind Josh Brookes yesterday and clawed back some podium credits on Leon Haslam who finished in third twice.

"I was trying everything. I had a big false neutral early in the race and it got stuck in third for a bit but the race was much different to earlier, and I think Josh and I knew we had a much stronger pace than we showed in race one," said Irwin, speaking at the track.


"The pace was faster and you're trying to save a bit of tyre too but fair play to Josh, at the end I gave it everything - I nearly flicked myself at Druids, lost the front at Graham Hill, I got back to him and he nearly did the same at the last corner.

"But he rode a strong race, Leon kept us honest and it's important to be good here. We come back here in October and I fully believe we will be fighting for the championship, and cooler conditions should help us a little more too. But we've got a lot of racing to do in between..."
