Glenn Irwin has collected his second win of the weekend to eat into Tommy Bridewell's 2023 British Superbike Championship lead at Cadwell Park.

The BeerMonster Ducati rider recovered from a start on the second row to work his way to the front of the pack, Irwin getting the better of Kyle Ryde coming into the final lap.

A scrappy performance in a competitive race that saw the likes of Ryde, Leon Haslam, Lee Jackson and Ryan Vickers all share stints in the lead at some stage, it was the latter of these that seemed most likely to sprint home to victory after getting the jump on pole sitter Haslam coming into the first turn.


Steadily opening up a gap on the chasing pack behind, Vickers' hopes of a second win - a first in the dry - would be dashed with an off at Chris Curve from the LAMI OMG Yamaha.

That promoted Haslam back into the lead briefly before he was levered aside by Jackson on lap ten in a firm move that also allowed Ryde to chase him through.

Jackson - who suffered a huge accident on landing at The Mountain 12 months ago - held sway for four further laps when he relented to Ryde's pressure. Behind them, having made steady progress up the order to get in amongst the lead fight, Irwin dispatched of Haslam for third on the same lap and immediately set about getting into the battle for victory.

Sizing up Jackson on the penultimate lap, Irwin got the move done as he set off in pursuit of Ryde for one final push, an objective he completed at the start of the final lap. Ryde fought back but, much the same as race one, he couldn't find a way through.

A full 18 points for Irwin means he has pulled back more ground on BeerMonster Ducati team-mate Bridewell, who followed home in third. The margin between them is now down to 12.5 points.

Jason O'Halloran completed the podium for McAMS Yamaha after muscling past Jackson, the FS-3 Kawasaki man also losing out to Haslam in fourth and Bridewell in fifth to complete the top six.

Despite receiving a penalty for not ceding enough time after skipping the chicane, Christian Iddon held onto seventh from Josh Brookes and Storm Stacey, while Tom Neave took one of his best results in BSB with tenth.
