irish road races flag Irishman Kennedy does the double at Brands to lead the BSB Supersport Championship

Jack Kennedy took his second win of the season in the Dickies British Supersport Championship, taking the series lead in the process. The opening half of the Dickies British Junior Supersport Feature race saw Ben Currie grab the holeshot, with Dubliner Kennedy and Jamie Perrin in close contention, however Perrin received a ride through penalty for jumping the start meaning Rispoli moved up to hold the final rostrum position. With rain starting to fall on lap 14, the race was red flagged and restarted over 12 laps.

Forming the grid as per positions on lap 12, it was Rispoli who grabbed the holeshot to lead at the end of the of the opening lap by almost a second over Currie and Kennedy. Setting a string of fast laps, Kennedy moved through on the start of lap five with Currie also in close contention. Less than 0.3s covered the trio over the second half of the race, however Kennedy was able to hold on to claim his second win of the weekend and take the Championship lead, with Rispoli second and Currie third.

Ross Twyman secured fourth place with Robert Kennedy fifth, just ahead of Bradley Perie in sixth. Josh Ownes was the first of the GP2 Cup riders in 10th.

watched the second race last night......

great result, just what he needs as his last few seasons have been lacklustre through no fault of his own.

Good man jack...double top will do nicely




Currie was on a mission, the rain threw him, but Rispoli, anyone seem him in the interview, talk about high on endorphins. Remind you of nicky hayden funnily enough.

Chuffed for the 3 of them.

yet again, you have to hand it to BSB, they dont muck about when it comes to safety.

ding dong Jack
