BSB 2016 Brands Hatch Indy race one results
Race results from the third round of the British Superbike Championship
LEON Haslam claimed the race one win at Brands Hatch this weekend on the Brands Hatch Indy circuit over James Ellison as the two JG Speedfit Kawasaki team-mates fighting for the.
Ellison had fired off the grid to lead the pack into Paddock Hill Bend for the first time ahead of pole-sitter Luke Mossey and Richard Cooper as Shane 'Shakey' Byrne dropped back to 15th from his front row start.
The first rider on the move was Tommy Bridewell on the Bennetts Suzuki as he held onto fourth position on the opening lap. Two laps later he was making his first move on Cooper at Paddock Hill Bend. The Buildbase BMW rider fought back through Druids to re-claim his position, but Bridewell wasn’t finished there.
Danny Buchan’s race ended prematurely when he suffered a huge high-side on the exit of Clearways and crashed out on the fourth lap whilst at the front Ellison held onto his position, but finding it hard to break away from the pack.
On the eighth lap Bridewell made his next move with a pass down the inside at Paddock Hill Bend on Cooper, just after Mossey had pulled the same move on Ellison to take the lead.
Three laps later their battle was paused when the Nissan GT-R Safety Car was deployed after Jenny Tinmouth, James Rispoli and Vittorio Iannuzzo crashed out together at Druids. The race resumed and Ellison tried everything to make the pass, but finally made it stick on the 17th lap at Paddock Hill Bend.
A lap later and Mossey lost another place at the first corner when Bridewell pulled an incredible move with the pair almost touching mid-corner. The Bennetts Suzuki rider then set his sights on Ellison, but his team-mate Haslam was now on the move past Mossey and then Cooper.
On the final lap Haslam first made his move on Bridewell with a move into Paddock Hill Bend and then it was Ellison. Pushing to make a move on his JG Speedfit Kawasaki team-mate, the leaders exited Clearways for the final time and Haslam had the narrow advantage as they crossed the line to give the team their first one-two podium finish by only 0.057s.
Bridewell held onto third to secure Suzuki’s first podium finish since 2014 ahead of Cooper and Mossey with Michael Laverty the first of the Tyco BMWs in sixth place. He held off Peter Hickman and Jason O'Halloran with Byrne climbing back to ninth and Dan Linfoot completing the top ten.
