Brogan seals first-ever EVO title

Steve Brogan edges Hudson Kennaugh to take Jentin BMW to the first-ever British Superbike EVO title at Oulton Park.
Steve Brogan has been crowned the first-ever winner of the British Superbike EVO Championship after doing what he needed to do to keep Hudson Kennaugh at bay during the Oulton Park finale.

The former Superstock 1000 champion has been locked in a head-to-head with the South African all season, the Jentin BMW rider often proving the quickest – if not the most consistent – competitor in the EVO ranks.

However, Brogan was able to fend off a late charge by Kennaugh to ensure the title went his way by a mere three points, the Liverpudlian delighted to have made both his and BMW's mark in British Superbikes.

“I couldn't have done this without all the guys in the Jentin Racing-BMW Motorrad team this year, they've all been fantastic, and of course everybody at BMW Motorrad UK who I have to thank for giving me the superb S 1000 RR to ride this year.

"Without everyone involved I just couldn't have done it. I'd especially like to dedicate this to my friends and family back home in Liverpool who've supported me from start to finish. Thank you everyone! We've done it!"

A title for BMW in its first season of BSB racing, Brogan was also able to score 34 points in the overall standings – 18 more than Kennaugh.
