Full BSB race two results from Brands Hatch

Reigning Bennetts British Superbike champion Leon Haslam has started his crowning day with victory in the wet race two at Brands Hatch – his first victory on the Grand Prix track for JG Speedfit Kawasaki.

Having clinched the 2018 BSB title in Saturday’s race one, Haslam completed his final target for the year by winning at Brands Hatch GP after seeing a top step triumph at the iconic track allude him with the Kawasaki squad.

In a hectic wet race with only 14 finishers, Haslam was involved in a race-long battle with multiple riders for the lead but managed to stage a breakaway with two laps remaining to gap both Tommy Bridewell and Jason O’Halloran.

Bridewell fended off the Australian rider for his first podium since Oulton Park for Moto Rapido Ducati while O’Halloran’s third place capped his first rostrum since May at the Brands Hatch Indy round for Honda.

Richard Cooper claimed fourth place for Buildbase Suzuki following a number of fallers ahead of him including Jake Dixon (RAF Regular & Reserve Kawasaki), Andrew Irwin (Be Wiser Ducati) and James Ellison (Anvil Hire Yamaha) as riders struggled in the wet and slippery conditions.
