Easter Monday brought torrential rain overnight but through the day the rain eased and the track started to slowly dry. The Supersport race got underway in mixed conditions, with a dry line starting to appear. Kennedy opted for an intermediate rear tyre, whilst Jones went for a full wet option from 21st on the grid.
Currie immediately took the lead from the first lap and started to open out an insurmountable lead.
"It's good for our championship chase - two second places and some good points on the board especially with the very tricky conditions all weekend. I would've preferred a dry race on Monday to see if the improvements we worked on the Integro Yamaha overnight had worked. We took a gamble with an intermediate rear tyre and it just never came to us. Good start to the year, hopefully pick up two wins rather than two seconds at Brands Hatch."
"Overall there are many positives to take from this weekend. My pace in the dry is good and I was pleased to qualify fourth on Sunday. It's frustrating to make the wrong tyre choice in race one causing me to pull out, which also gave me a poor grid position for race two.
A tough race battling to 12th in dodgy conditions but we've come away with some points and all in one piece. Looking forward to round two where we can hopefully have a strong weekend. Most importantly I feel good on the bike and the team are doing a great job."
