Jones again battled hard throughout the race and came across the line in seventh, after missing out in the closing stages in a battle for sixth.
The feature race went to the same script we’ve seen at most races this year with Kennedy and Currie having the pace to move clear of the battle behind. Jones, meanwhile, was enthralled in that fight for third place but unfortunately crashed out whilst trying to earn his first podium finish in the class. The duo at the front again swapped places regularly with Currie holding the advantage as they came across back-markers.
Due to the tight and twisty nature of Knockhill, Kennedy got stuck behind one of the slower riders giving Currie the chance to pull out the biggest gap of the race at just over three quarters of second. However, thanks to posting the fastest lap of the race, Kennedy reeled in the Australian, passed him late in the race and held on for an eighth win in as many races.
Leaving Knockhill and heading into Brands Hatch in a fortnight’s time, Kennedy is now 54 points clear at the top of the British Supersport championship. Jones remains sixth in the title chase on 77 points.
