Jack Kennedy looking to extend lead

The Motorpoint British Supersport Championship protected by Datatag arrives for a momentous first event at the legendary Assen circuit in Holland this weekend (21/22/23 September) as Jack Kennedy bids to extend his advantage in the overall standings.
Kennedy regained the standings lead after his Australian rival Glen Richards briefly snatched it away but just 10.5 points separate the pair ahead of the historic two races this weekend. The second Smiths (Gloucester) Racing Triumph rider Billy McConnell has also been a podium contender and he is coming under increased fire from Oxford TAG Triumph rival Christian Iddon.
This weekend also marks the return of the championship-winning Tyco Suzuki team, who will line up on the grid again after lifting the title with Alastair Seeley last season. They have signed up young gun PJ Jacobsen for this event following the New Yorker’s sensational victory in the Superstock class at Donington Park last time out.
Australian Supersport title contender Brodie Waters also will make his debut in the class as he jets in for the event with the Hampshire Motorcycles team.
Motorpoint British Supersport Championship protected by Datatag standings:
1.     Jack Kennedy (Martrain Yamaha) 310.5
2.     Glen Richards (Smiths (Gloucester) Racing Triumph) 300
3.     Billy McConnell (Smiths (Gloucester) Racing Triumph) 261
4.     Christian Iddon (Oxford TAG Triumph) 186.5
5.     Ben Wilson (Gearlink Kawasaki) 185
