BSS: Feature race result hangs in the balance

Published: 07 July 2017

The result of Sunday’s Dickies British Supersport feature race still hangs in the balance after second-placed Andrew Irwin allegedly passed Tempus MV Agusta’s Jack Kennedy under yellow flags on the final lap.

With the second MCE British Superbike race setting off immediately after the Supersport feature outing, race direction had hoped to hold a hearing to further investigate the incident following the Superbike race.

However, Irwin had already left the circuit and any such hearing would require the presence of both riders involved.

With Alastair Seeley taking victory on the Moto2-inspired Spirit Motorcycles entry, which doesn’t score points in the Supersport class, while Irwin and Kennedy finished second and third respectively it’s 25-points they are now fighting over.

A Race Direction hearing will now take place at the next round at Brands Hatch on Thursday 20th July at 17:00.

Despite having been absent for two rounds after a move to Moto2, Tarran Mackenzie remains the leader of the Supersport standings, five points ahead of Appleyard Macadam’s Keith Farmer who crashed out of Sunday’s feature race after taking victory in the sprint race on Saturday.
