John Reynolds won the first race at Brands Hatch in Kent today, Sunday April 12, after a second-lap incident.
The pace car had to come out after Glen Richards and Sean Emmett came together on the approach to Druids on lap two. Once the race got back under way, there was no such drama for Reynolds, who went all the way to the chequered flag unchallenged, claiming the fastest lap in the process at 46.537 seconds. Michael Rutter had to work his way up into second place, whilst Reynolds’ Rizla Suzuki team-mate Yukio Kagayma took third.
