Four and a half points separate Motorpoint British Supersport Championship protected by Datatag standings leader Jack Kennedy and Smiths (Gloucester) Racing Triumph’s Glen Richards ahead of the penultimate round of the season this weekend at Silverstone.


Kennedy crashed out at Assen giving fierce title rival Richards the chance to close down the gap as the pair are set to fight it out again this weekend on one of the fastest circuits on the calendar. However the title protagonists have been coming under fire from their rivals including Oxford TAG Triumph’s Christian Iddon who claimed his first win of the season at Assen last weekend.

The second Smiths (Gloucester) Racing Triumph rider Billy McConnell missed out on a podium last weekend and the Aussie will be seeking a return to the top three this weekend to remain ahead of Iddon in the standings whilst Ben Wilson is still chasing an elusive first win of the season for Gearlink Kawasaki.

Motorpoint British Supersport Championship protected by Datatag standings:
1. Jack Kennedy (MarTrain Yamaha) 330.5
2. Glen Richards (Smiths Gloucester Triumph) 326
3. Billy McConnell (Smiths Gloucester Triumph) 271
4. Christian Iddon (Oxford TAG Triumph) 231.5
5. Ben Wilson (Gearlink Kawasaki) 203
