. @JackKennedy1 & @TsingtaoRacing top the Supersport timesheets at #ThruxtonBSB Day 1

 

Jack Kennedy stormed his Tempus MV Agusta to the top of the time sheets at a sunny Thruxton today, dominating the top spot for both free practice sessions.  In the opening free practice Jack took the lead from early, staying there until the chequered flag with Currie a close second in the closing stages of the session.  Once again in FP2 Jack set the pace from the start, topping the leader board and improving his times by a further 0.6 to take the flag in P1 ahead of Francis and Tmyman.  Tomorrow’s qualifying starts at 11:00 with Race 1 at 17:20 televised live on Eurosport 2 with live timing and radio http://www.britishsuperbike.com/

The seventh round of the Dickies British Supersport championship hits the fastest circuit on the calendar at Thruxton in Hampshire this weekend. Jack Kennedy moved up the leader board courtesy of his win last time out at Brands, currently placed 3rd in the championship standings and just seven points adrift of 2nd. He will be aiming for another strong points score to stay firmly in title contention and will be pushing for more podium finishes once again come race day.
