Irishman Jack Kennedy cruised to his second win of the weekend, completing his Dickies British Supersport clean sweep with an easy victory this afternoon.

The championship leader has extended his points advantage significantly over title rival Ben Currie after the German-born Australian’s machine suffered a mechanical problem that forced him out of contention.

Gearlink Kawasaki’s Currie shot out front at the start ahead of Kennedy and his Integro Yamaha team-mate Brad Jones, while Dan Drayton had gone down and taken James Westmoreland with him, prompting an ill-fated right hook from the Yorkshireman which completely missed.

Bach at the front, Kennedy moved ahead at the Bombhole before Currie repaid the favour at Riches on the next lap.

Kennedy was soon back ahead as he and Currie gapped the rest of the field, but on the fifth lap of 15, Currie sat up heading into Brundle and put his hand up, indicating he had a problem.

The Austrialian headed into the pits while Kennedy scorched to his sixth straight win, 6.279s clear of EHA Racing Yamaha’s Ross Tywman, who beat Everquip Racing’s James Rispoli and Brad Jones to second as the American bagged third.
