Kennedy claims final win as Farmer secures Championship title!

Keith Farmer has been crowned 2017 Dickies British Supersport Champion after securing the title with a fifth place in the final race of the season. It was Jamie Perrin who led at the end of the opening lap, ahead of Joe Francis and Andrew Irwin. A crash from Eemeli Lahti on lap four saw the safety car deployed, pitting in just a few laps later. As the race resumed, David Allingham swooped through to lead before Kennedy took over front running on lap seven. Irwin held second for the majority of the race ahead of his team mate Ben Currie however it was a five rider battle for the win.

Moving back into the lead on lap 12, Kennedy was able to pull a small gap over the rest of the field to cross the line and take his fourth win of the season. Allingham eventually secured second place with Irwin third. Farmer crossed the line in fifth place, seeing him secure the 2017 Supersport title in the process.
