Dickies British Supersport Champion-elect Jack Kennedy bagged the Sprint race win at Oulton Park, making his way from third on the first lap through to further extend his series lead.

Kennedy had Integro Yamaha team-mate Brad Jones for company in the 12-lapper while the battle for the podium raged between GP2 runner Kyle Ryde, former champion Alastair Seeley and Mason Law, on another GP2 contender.

Seeley passed Ryde for third place on lap seven and got his head down to try and reel in Jones, passing him at the end of lap nine.

The Irishman was distracted by a backmarker a lap later and Jones dived up the inside at Shell but he was back past again as they came into Hizzy’s.

On the last lap, Jones looked for a move into Cascades but thought better of it while Ryde was also looking for a way back on to the podium.

Jones was forced to try and look to the outside at Lodge on the last lap but it was not to be and had to settle for third.

Ryde bagged fourth and took the GP2 title with Law fifth and Westmoreland charging up to sixth on the last lap. Tom Oliver took seventh, Richard Kerr eighth, Harry Truelove ninth and Charlie Nesbitt, riding with a broken foot, in tenth.
