Irishman Jack Kennedy led every lap of today’s Dickies British Supersport sprint race to notch up his third win of the year in dominant fashion.

The Integro Yamaha man held off championship rivals Alastair Seeley and team-mate Brad Jones as he crossed the line almost four seconds clear of trouble.

Jones got the best getaway, leading the pack into turn one but it took Kenendy just a few corners to get past and up into the lead as Seeley and Kyle Ryde slotted into third and fourth, respectively.

Roads man Lee Johnston got a good start on the Ashcourt Racing Yamaha and was running in fifth, right behind Ryde, when he was hit with mechanical woes at the end of the second lap and forced into retirement.

From there, Kennedy had an easy run to the finish.

Meanwhile in the battle for second, Jones was unable to hold off a charging seeley who shoved his EHA Racing Yamaha past for the runner-up spot on lap five and the pair stuck close together for the remainder of the 12-lap scrap.

Kennedy was out in front riding a lonely race and cruised across the line to win by 3.601s as Seeley held off Jones by 0.081s
