BSB 2015 Brands Hatch race 3 results
Newly crowned Champ Brookes crashes out of the final BSB race of the season
TYCO BMW’s Michael Laverty claimed his first win of the season in the final race of the 2015 BSB Championship at Brands Hatch as new champ Josh Brookes crashed out.
It was John Hopkins who took the lead on the opening lap from Byrne and Laverty with Brookes down in seventh. The Australian fought through the pack on the opening laps, but on the second lap Byrne had hit the front of the field with Laverty pushing to make a move.
Laverty made a lunge at Druids only to run slightly wide, giving Byrne the advantage to cut back ahead. Another rider, JG Speedfit Kawasaki’s James Ellison, was determined to return to the podium in the final race of the season and by lap three he had moved up to second after a move on Byrne at Graham Hill Bend.
Byrne took none of it and moved back ahead before Surtees to push Ellison back to second. Ellison made a move down the inside at Paddock Hill Bend, but the PBM Kawasaki rider attacked with a move at Druids.
Byrne moved ahead of Ellison, who was forced to sit up, which dropped him to third as Laverty took advantage.
Attempting to make it a perfect weekend, Brookes was pushing and had moved up to second until the Milwaukee Yamaha rider touched the curb at Graham Hill Bend which saw him crash out unhurt – his first DNF of the season.
Laverty held the lead from Byrne and Ellison, with the trio trading paint for the podium positions. Byrne had moved to the front of the trio at Clearways, but Laverty had reclaimed the advantage by Paddock Hill Bend.
Laverty was able to fend the Kawasaki pair off to the chequered flag to claim his first win of the season while Ellison and Byrne battled for second right to the line with Ellison finishing 0.182 ahead of Byrne.
Dan Linfoot claimed fourth place from Christian Iddon and Luke Mossey, who sealed the Riders Cup title. Danny Buchan held off Hopkins for seventh place on the second PBM Kawasaki. Jakub Smrz and Howie Mainwaring completed the top ten.
