Aussie Ben Currie took charge of the opening round of the 2018 Dickies British Supersport championship after a commanding double victory at Donington Park this weekend.

The Gearlink Kawasaki ace managed to hold off Integro Yamaha’s Jack Kennedy by 0.2 seconds to take victory in Sunday’s dry race before decimating the field in the wet-on Monday, crossing the line a mind-blowing 24.328 seconds ahead of the Irishman after pulling a ten second lead in the first two laps.

Kennedy’s two second places sees him sit ten points behind Currie in second with Tom Oliver, who steps up from Superstock 600, third after a strong debut weekend in both wet and dry conditions.

Finishing third and eighth in the two races, Ross Twyman sits fourth for EHA Racing ahead of the returning James Westmoreland, whose fifth and sixth place finishes from the weekend’s two races place him fifth in the championship standings.

Jorel Boerboom leads the inaugural British GP2 series after a win and third place ahead of Tomas De Vries and Eugene McManus.
