Leon Haslam has maintained his run of winning a race at every Cadwell Park round he’s contested in the MCE British Superbike championship after getting the better of Jake Dixon.

The JG Speedfit Kawasaki rider has clinched his first BSB win since round three at Oulton Park but was made to sweat for it after getting past Dixon into the lead at the halfway stage with a classic move up the inside at Park corner.

In a race where the top six were never separated by more than two seconds, a train of riders all looked in contention for the victory but the tight and twisty nature of Cadwell Park denied any clear-cut overtaking opportunities.

Despite Dixon’s best efforts in the closing laps he couldn’t find a way past Haslam as the former World Superbike star clinched victory by 0.131s from the RAF Reserves Kawasaki rider.

Just behind the top two Shane Byrne recovered from a scary moment at Mansfield on lap two when he almost tucked the front of his Be Wiser Ducati but held on to claw his way to third place ahead of Smiths Racing BMW’s Peter Hickman.

Honda’s Jason O’Halloran strengthened his place in the top six Showdown with fifth place ahead of local rider Lee Jackson on the Smiths Racing BMW.

Michael Laverty led the McAMS Yamaha charge in seventh place by fending off a late charge from Tyco BMW’s Christian Iddon as Team WD-40 Kawasaki’s Tommy Bridewell and the second McAMS Yamaha of James Ellison completed the top ten.

Glenn Irwin edged Josh Brookes into 12th on the Anvil Hire Yamaha which leaves him just two points above Dixon in the final top six Showdown spot but has moved to three points behind the absent Luke Mossey.
