Seeley grabs win in action packed opening Dickies British Supersport race!

Alastair Seeley took victory in the opening Dickies British Supersport race at Brands Hatch, powering past title rival Jack Kennedy on the run to the line. It was the EHA Racing Yamaha of Seeley who grabbed the holeshot, but the GP2 machine of Kyle Ryde had sliced his way through as they crossed the line at the end of lap one.

Seeley, Ryde, Kennedy and Brad Jones traded places throughout the opening five laps before spots of rain saw the red flag deployed. Declared a wet race, the restart began in dry conditions and saw the quintet again battling at the front but as the rain returned it allowed Bradley Perie and Ben Wilson to both take turns leading the race.

Coming down to the final lap, Seeley led at the start but Kennedy moved through to lead on the run into Clearways. Coming onto the straight Kennedy held the lead but Seeley was able to power through to take the win by just 0.026s. On his debut ride on the GP2 machine, Mason Law took the win ahead of Jamie Perrin and Kyle Ryde.
