BSB 2016 Oulton Park race one results
Race results from the second round of the British Superbike Championship
LEON Haslam has returned to the top step of the British Superbike Championship podium in the opening race at Oulton Park after holding off Christian Iddon to cross the line 0.103s ahead.
At the start of the race team-mate James Ellison had launched off the line to take the lead ahead of Honda Racing’s Jason O'Halloran and Dan Linfoot plus Jack Kennedy on the Team WD-40 Kawasaki with Haslam holding fifth from his pole position start.
Haslam made a key move on Kennedy into Lodge on the third lap to gain another position closer to his first podium finish of the season. A few laps later, the JG Speedfit Kawasaki rider made the same move on Linfoot.
At the front Ellison had been building an advantage, but by mid-distance the chasing pack had closed in with Haslam now at the front of the second group with Linfoot and O’Halloran in close contention. Iddon had also picked up the pace and tagged onto the group as the battle for the podium intensified.
By lap 13 Linfoot was ready to make his move and jumped ahead with a move on Haslam on the run through Island with Ellison dropping to third behind his team-mate. Linfoot had begun his final charge, but a mistake at Hizzys cost him dearly as he crashed out of the lead just two laps later.
Haslam then led the pack from Iddon and Ellison who had O’Halloran for company in the fight for the top three. The race winner would come down to the last lap and Haslam held the initial advantage, but Iddon was pressing hard and the pair almost collided at Island as they both pushed for the win.
Iddon tried everything possible, but it was Haslam who held the slight advantage out of Lodge for the final time to score his first victory of the season.
Ellison finished on the last step of the podium with Jason O’Halloran and Alastair Seeley crossing the line fourth and fifth respectively.
