. @JackKennedy14 & @TsingtaoRacing take #BrandsBSB win!
Tempus MV Agusta’s Jack Kennedy took victory in the British Supersport feature race at Brands Hatch today. Starting from the fourth row of the grid, Jack had his work cut out but quickly knifed his way through the field to reel in the leading pack, setting the fastest lap of the race on the way. In a race long scrap at a blistering pace, Farmer, Irwin and Kennedy traded places for the Supersport win. Leaving it till the final corner on the last lap to make a sensational move, Jack cut beneath Irwin then found the drive to out drag Farmer to the line to snatch the win and MV Agusta’s second win of the season!
Speaking after the race, Jack Kennedy said “I’m really happy with that race. We took a gamble in yesterday’s that didn’t work and we had a terrible result so it’s great to be able to repay the team with a win. The race was tough, but I was able to sit behind Keith and Andrew and wait for the final lap where I was in the right place at the right time to get the drive out of the final corner and beat them to the line.”
