Pirelli National Superstock Championship with MotoNovo Finance: Kerr beats McConnell for debut win

19 June 2022

Richard Kerr held off a hard-charging Billy McConnell to win the second race at Knockhill by a mere 0.023sec.

The AMD Motorsport rider took the lead from points leader Brayden Elliott on lap eight and when Elliott took himself out of contention with a crash on lap 12, McConnell was able to close in to begin a challenge.

The Australian stalked Kerr for a few laps and made an attempt on the lead with five to go but then made a final go with a sweep inside the hairpin on the final lap – but was unable to outdrag him up the hill, leaving Kerr to take his first class win.

Tom Ward was third ahead of Davey Todd, while FHO Racing by Kobelco’s Alex Olsen took fifth.
