Change of "Strategy" Key to Kennedy's Knockhill Supersport Success

Jack Kennedy's return to the British Supersport Championship had gone without a win in the first three rounds of 2024, but that changed at round four at Knockhill.

Kennedy won both races at Knockhill, and claimed the championship lead as a result, this after missing the podium in both races at the Donington Park BSB.

"I don't think we could have had a better weekend than we've had here at Knockhill for round four of the British Supersport Championship and we nearly topped every session," Kennedy said.

"We got our first pole of the year and we've come away with two wins in dry and wet conditions. The team have been faultless. The Honda CBR600RR has been amazing at this Knockhill Circuit."

Kennedy was also full of praise for his Honda Racing UK team, who he said had changed the setup of his CBR600RR to "ride a little bit more like the guys at the front".

"We changed our strategy a little bit from what I normally do here on a 600," Kennedy said, "and it really paid off to ride a little bit more like the guys at the front are riding to make life hard for them like they make life hard for me and it really paid off. I didn't think the strategy would work on the on the 600cc in-line four but it has worked really well, so credit to the team for giving me this set up. 

"The bike’s been faultless and I keep stating how many days the lads have been working for nearly two months straight, no days off and there was no beat missed anywhere so I can't thank my team enough.

"Everybody knows this is a team sport. Although it's an individual rider out there, without the tools and the team and the atmosphere and everything behind you, you are not going to get the results, so I have to give this weekend to the team because I will always ride to the best of my ability, but if I haven't got the tools and the team, it's not going to happen."

Finally, Kennedy teased that an upgrade to the CBR600RR could be due for the next round at Snetterton on 5-7 July.

"We look forward to starting in two weeks time when the lads are gonna be working hard behind the scenes and we might have an even stronger bike for the next time, so I can't wait."
