BSB Brands: Seeley cruises to Supersport victory

Mar-Train Yamaha's Alistair Seeley claimed Motorpoint British Supersport victory after battling past the Smiths Triumph duo of Graeme Gowland and Billy McConnell.

Gearlink Kawasaki's Glenn Irwin took the holeshot from the front row of the grid but yesterday's race winner was unable to hold on to the lead for long. Aussie Billy McConnell came through on the brakes followed by Allendale rider Graeme Gowland. Seeley followed suit and moved past Carrickfergus rival Irwin at Graham Hill Bend.

The trio began to pull away from the chasing pack with Seeley setting a new lap record at half race distance. The wee wizard moved through to second place past McConnell and then past Gowland to take the lead. Seeley put three tenths between himself and Gowland before bravely moving past a back-marker at the tricky Surtees, McLarens combination of corners. The Smiths duo couldn't find a way through and suddenly Seeley had a second advantage.


The Northern Irishman pulled away to take victory by three seconds but the battle for the final podium places raged on. McConnell took second on the penultimate lap and looked certain to take the twenty points before Gowland barged through at the final corner of Clearways. The pair came together, clashing fairings with McConnell lucky to stay on. Gowland took second by just 0.071 of a second, making up for his crash yesterday.

Saturday's pace setter, Luke Stapleford, came through from the third row to take fourth place on his Profile Triumph ahead of Glenn Irwin and Luke Jones. Appleyard Macadam's Jake Dixon claimed seventh after Gearlink Kawasaki's Luke Hedger crashed out on the last lap. Tyco Suzuki's Taylor Mackenzie headed an epic eight rider battle for eighth place ahead of South African Bjorn Estment and TAG Triumph's Sam Hornsey.

Seeley now heads the championship by five points ahead of fellow Northern Irishman Glenn Irwin as the Supersport field leaves Brands Hatch
