Skinner dominates to take opening Quattro Group British Supersport Championship win!

Tyser Yamaha’s Rory Skinner dominated the opening Quattro Group British Supersport Championship race, cruising to victory by 7.605s. Gearlink Kawasaki’s James Westmoreland took the holeshot, but having been quick all weekend, Skinner wasted no time in slicing his way past into the lead by the time the crossed the line for the first time.

 

Steadily pulling away, the eighteen year old was able to control the race from the front but it was an action-packed race behind them. Westmoreland, Ben Currie and Brad Jones all took their turn chasing Skinner, trading places throughout the opening half of the race.

 

Alastair Seeley was the early GP2 race leader,  but his race came to an abrupt end on lap five when he tumbled from contention. Disaster would then strike Currie, who was forced to retire from the podium battle on lap 13.

 

Continuing to extend his lead at the front, Skinner eventually crossed the line some 7.6s ahead of the rest of the field. Westmoreland eventually secured second place ahead of Bradley Perie who completed the podium. Brad Jones finished fourth, ahead of the GP2 machines of Charlie Nesbitt and Mason Law.
