Double Victory and Series Lead for Kennedy and Team Appleyard Macadam

Round five of the Dickies British Supersport Championship at Knockhill this weekend proved to be a highly successful affair for our whole team as Jack Kennedy took both race wins with team-mate Brad Jones pushing hard for two runner up placings. 

Brad took the lap record in the second race and Kennedy’s wins saw him regain the championship lead!

I'm really happy with the win especially as we got a dry race but the wind made it difficult whilst Brad kept me honest throughout. I was putting in consistent laps, pretty much bang on the lap record but my board kept saying ‘+0’ so fair play to him. I got a bit of a gap at the end when we ran into the backmarkers but I’m delighted to have taken two wins and we’ve turned the Championship around so I couldn’t be happier!

Jack Kennedy

I think that’s the first time I’ve ever taken a lap record so I’m happy with that! I thoroughly enjoyed the race and Jack and I were setting a really hot pace but, unfortunately for me, the backmarkers put paid to me making an attack on Jack. At the same time, it would have been hard to make a pass as Jack was so strong but I’m happy to have come home in second place and take another 20 points.

Brad Jones

It’s been a perfect weekend really, Jack has been in control throughout and now sits back at the top of the standings whilst Brad has shown he can fight for the win and beat Seeley in a straight fight. The wet conditions in race one were really tough, then in race two the wind was so strong yet they were racing under the lap record, it just proves the pace and this class is still strong!
