Our team arrived at Cadwell with mixed expectations about the weekend ahead. Jack Kennedy, still injured, faced a big challenge with the tight and twisty track.
Equally Brad Jones, off the back of a difficult Thruxton, needed to hit the ground running in the opening free practice sessions and that is exactly what he did. Brad spent the majority of Friday in 2nd position behind teammate Jack before ending the day in 4th position.
Meanwhile Jack battled through the pain barrier once again, to take the provisional pole position. The timed qualifying practice took place on Saturday morning (18th August). Jack got out of the blocks fast and stuck a blistering time in, putting him on the top spot where he stayed for the remainder of the session.
Brad also got going well early on again, and found himself in second position for most of the session before being edged to 3rd by Josh Owens on the Moto 2 machine.
Saturday evening's sprint race was one to remember for our team. With both riders starting off on the front row, it was Brad Jones who took the whole shot. Leading the pack for the first lap, Jack and Ben Currie soon got to the front. Jack took control of the race and lead from there on in, taking the checkered flag 10 laps later to claim his 10th victory of the season. Brad went on to take his maiden Supersport podium in third place, with almost a 7 second gap back to the next man in 4th.
