Farmer grabs Dickies Supersport Sprint race win by just 0.045s!

Keith Farmer claimed victory in an action-packed opening Dickies British Supersport Championship race at Silverstone, beating Andrew Irwin by just 0.045s. It was Benjamin Currie who grabbed the holeshot, leading Farmer and team mate Irwin at the end of the opening lap. With the track quickly drying the trio were able to pull away from the pursuing pack, trading places throughout the ten lap sprint meaning it came down to the final lap where, despite a brief pass from Irwin, Farmer was able to fend off the Gearlink Kawasaki to claim his eighth win of the season.

Currie eventually secured third, just 0.176s behind Farmer with Eemeli Lahti taking fourth on his

777RR HRP Suzuki. Matt Truelove claimed fifth, with pole man Jack Kennedy sixth and McAMS Yamaha rider Arthur Sissis in seventh. David Allingham, Kurt Wigley and Ryan Dixon completed the top ten.
