The postponed MCE British Superbike race at Brands Hatch
has been rescheduled for the Bank Holiday meeting at Oulton Park
on Sunday, May 6.
The second race at Brands on Easter Monday was aborted due to deteriorating surface conditions after Jon Kirkham had won the opening race ahead of Alastair Seeley.
May's Bank Holiday meeting at Oulton Park
will now be a triple-header of BSB
The re-scheduled race will take place on the Sunday afternoon following qualifying. Riders will line up in the grid positions that were intended for race two at Brands Hatch, with Tyco Suzuki's Seeley starting from pole position.
Two further races at Oulton Park
will then take place on Bank Holiday Monday, May 7 as planned.
MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship Series Director, Stuart Higgs, said: “It was hugely disappointing that we had to postpone the second Superbike race at Brands Hatch
“We evaluated all possible rescheduling options and determined that it will take place at the next round of the championship at Oulton Park
over the May Bank Holiday weekend.”
