Full BSB race two results from Knockhill

Leon Haslam has halted Jake Dixon’s winning run at Knockhill after the RAF Regular & Reserves Kawasaki rider saved a huge moment which almost threw him off while hunting a double victory.

Dixon secured a first Bennetts British Superbike championship win for 12 months in race one at the Scottish circuit and looked a strong favourite to repeat his 2017 double victory at Knockhill leading with five laps to go.

But at Turn 7 Dixon was almost flung into a huge high-side but was able to keep on his ZX-10RR but lost all momentum which allowed Haslam to skate past. Dixon was also put under pressure from Danny Buchan but the youngster held his nerve to keep second place ahead of the FS-3 Racing Kawasaki rider.

With Kawasaki dominating at Knockhill, Be Wiser Ducati’s Glenn Irwin had to settle for fourth place again in a relatively lonely race comfortably ahead of Tyco BMW duo Michael Laverty and Christian Iddon.

Richard Cooper led the Buildbase Suzuki charge after teammate Bradley Ray was forced to retire with a technical issue with five laps remaining in race two, while Josh Brookes on the McAMS Yamaha was another to suffer a technical DNF.

Andrew Irwin claimed an impressive eighth place for Be Wiser Ducati, continuing to stand-in for the injured Shane Byrne, as James Ellison (Anvil Hire TAG Yamaha) and Peter Hickman (Smiths Racing BMW) rounded out the top 10.

Tarran Mackenzie fought back from a difficult home round to take 11th place for McAMS Yamaha ahead of Luke Mossey (JG Speedfit Kawasaki) as Dan Linfoot (Honda), Mason Law (Team WD-40 Kawasaki) and Gino Rea (OMG Racing Suzuki) completed the points places.
