News in brief

Ben­netts Suzuki’s Tommy Bridewell walked away with no points after a strong ride in the first race saw him in con­tention for vic­tory un­til he crashed out of third at Sur­tees on the fi­nal lap. After a de­cent start in race two, he was pre­vented from mak­ing amends as a brake prob­lem forced him to re­tire.

Ryuichi Kiy­onari and the Suzuki team have parted com­pany after yet an­other dif­fi­cult week­end for the three-time cham­pion. The team are now on the look­out for a second rider and hope to have some­one in place for the next round at Cad­well Park at the Bank Hol­i­day week­end. It looked as though Tar­ran Macken­zie would leave Brands with a de­cent lead in the Dick­ies Bri­tish Supersport cham­pi­onship as he took the dou­ble in Satur­day’s sprint races. How­ever, a fall for the Scots­man in Sun­day’s fea­ture race saw his 31-point gap re­duced to just six points by Yamaha’s James West­more­land.

Older brother Tay­lor Macken­zie ex­tended his lead in the Pirelli Na­tional Su­per­stock se­ries with a dom­i­nant fourth vic­tory of the sea­son over Ian Hutchin­son. Macken­zie now sits 28 points clear of his Tyco BMW ri­val.
