Pacedays Yamaha’s Ben Currie stormed to his second Motorpoint British Supersport win, getting the better of Came BPT Yamaha’s James Westmoreland at half race distance and eventually taking the chequered flag a second clear.
Westmoreland took the holeshot from pole position but wasn’t challenged by the man next to him on the front row of the grid, Andy Reid. The Quattro Plant Kawasaki rider went backwards off of the line, ending 27th on the first lap. He finished the race in 17th, an electrical issue plaguing him for the duration of the race.
Currie came through from the second row of the grid to join the battle for the lead and eventually he took the lead after diving past Westmoreland on the run into the chicane.
Meanwhile, as Currie raced off into a comfortable lead, Luke Jones was battling through to catch Lee Johnston in third place.
Jones was made to work for the final podium place but after several attempted moves, he got past the diminutive Northern Irishman.
As they came across the line to take the chequered flag, Currie was a second clear of Westmoreland, who in turn was a further second ahead of Jones.
Johnston had to settle for fourth but it could’ve been fifth, if a charging Luke Hedger hadn’t broken down in the closing stages.
Came BPT Yamaha’s Joe Francis took the chequered flag in that fifth place, ahead of the EHA Racing duo of Ross Twyman and David Allingham.
WD40 Kawasaki’s Tarran Mackenzie rode exceptionally well to come through from the back of the grid to take eighth place, after fighting past Matt Truelove and Mason Law, who rounded out the top ten.
