Skinner strikes back with Quattro Group British Supersport win!

Rory Skinner climbed back to the top step of the Quattro Group British Supersport podium with a close-fought victory in the Feature race. It was race one victor Brad Jones who grabbed the holeshot, but current series leader Skinner was in close contention. As the leading duo began to pull away from the pursuing pack, the battle for third started to heat up as James Westmoreland, Lee Johnston and Harry Truelove continued to trade places throughout the opening half of the race.

Back at the front, Skinner had found a way past his team mate but was unable to shake off Jones. Pulling away from the pursuing pack, by the halfway stage they had built a seven second lead over the rest of the field.

Remaining in flying formation, the closing stages of the race saw Skinner try and edge out a small lead over his team mate but Jones was quick to respond. As they started the final lap, the pair were separated by just 0.1s, but Skinner was able to fend off the fast-charging Jones.

The battle for third remained just as intense as three contenders were joined by Bradley Perie and the GP2 machines of Mason Law and Jack Scott. Trading places throughout the final stages, it eventually went down the way of Perie, with Truelove securing fourth ahead of Westmoreland, Johnston and the leading GP2 machine of Charlie Nesbitt.
