Dominant Byrne doubles up at Snetterton

1 of 2

PBM Kawasaki rider Shane Byrne has doubled up at Snetterton, taking his second MCE British Superbike race win of the day to secure his title lead over runner-up Josh Brookes.

Byrne was once again able to make a break at the front, clear of Honda’s Jason O’Halloran, continuing his best ever day in BSB. Brookes suffered early in the race, struggling with a software problem on the Milwaukee Yamaha, but was able to find his pace later in the race and clear past his fellow Aussie for second.

Michael Laverty was a strong fourth, as he starts to find his promised form on the Tyco BMW, ahead of teammate Tommy Bridewell and the second of the PBM bikes of Stuart Easton.
