Currie continues winning Supersport form!

Gearlink Kawasaki’s Ben Currie has continued his winning form, taking his third consecutive Dickies British Supersport Championship victory in the opening race at Assen. Launching off the line, Currie controlled the race from the front, pulling away to eventually cross the line 5.778s ahead of second place.

It was disaster for Championship leader Keith Famer though as he crashed out of contention on the opening lap, with title rival Andrew Irwin securing second place behind his team mate. Farmer still enjoys a 63 point lead at the top of the standings.

Completing the podium in third place was Supersport returnee Luke Jones, with Ross Twyman fourth and Bjorn Estment fifth. Jack Kennedy crashed out on the penultimate lap
