Andy Reid picked up where he left off at Donington with victory in this weekend’s first Pirelli National Superstock 1000 scrap, beating Keith Farmer and points leader Billy McConnell to the win.
Pole-sitter McConnell shot off the line to nab the hole shot, but Tyco BMW’s Farmer was already past the Australian as the pack hit Druids for the first of 24 laps, with Reid slotting into second.
The former Stock 1000 champion pulled nearly a half second out of Reid by the end of lap one, but Reid had reeled him back in the very next lap and slipped by Farmer to hit the front on lap six.
The EHA Racing Aprilia rider put his head down and continued to click off fast laps, extending a 1.379s lead by lap 15, but moments later allowed Farmer to pull the gap all the way back to just 0.218s.
Reid wasn’t to be deterred, however, and he held off Farmer all the way to the flag to take the win by 0.711s, with Buildbase Suzuki’s McConnell completing the podium.
Quinnstheprinters.com BMW’s Chrissy Rouse and EHA Racing’s Joe Collier rounded out the top five.
