James Ellison has clinched McAMS Yamaha’s first-ever MCE British Superbike championship victory having seen off Lee Jackson who takes his maiden podium in the series in a hectic Cadwell Park race two.

While the familiar train of front-running rivals emerged over the opening half of the race it sparked into life after early leader Jake Dixon tipped off at Hall Bends on lap nine. Two laps later Shane Byrne claimed the lead off of Jackson only to see his Be Wiser Ducati grind to a halt half a lap later with a technical issue. On the same lap Leon Haslam tipped off fighting for fourth at Park corner with Peter Hickman.

With three front runners out in quick succession it set-up a three-way battle between Ellison, Jackson and Hickman who had cleared away to fight for the win. Ellison made a bold move up the inside of Jackson with two laps to go and held his nerve for his first win since the final round last year.

The victory marks McAMS Yamaha’s first win in BSB since stepping up to the Superbike class, while the records continued to be made at Cadwell Park as local rider Jackson notched up his maiden BSB podium ahead of Smiths Racing BMW team-mate Peter Hickman.

With a number of title contenders out of the running, it saw Jason O’Halloran take a much-needed fourth place on the Honda to firm up his BSB Showdown place while Christian Iddon on the Tyco BMW closed the gap on the top six.

Tommy Bridewell took a superb sixth place for Team WD-40 Kawasaki ahead of Josh Brookes on the Anvil Hire Yamaha and Michael Laverty on the second McAMS Yamaha.

Glenn Irwin grabbed ninth on the Be Wiser Ducati as Sylvain Guintoli recovered from a difficult race weekend to complete the top ten for Bennetts Suzuki.

Bradley Ray came home in 11th for Buildbase Suzuki ahead of Martin Jessopp ( BMW) as Andrew Reid, Jakub Smrz and Taylor Mackenzie rounded out the points places.
