After getting the perfect start from pole, Mackenzie led Bradley Ray and fellow Scot Rory Skinner at the front. 

Skinner then made his way past Ray into second, however, the safety car was deployed for the first time this season, before a red flag halted proceedings as Brad Jones crashed heavily at Clark Curve (lap 1).  

Once the race restarted, Takumi Takahashi crashed immediately on lap one of a revised 12 - turn three. 

Up front, Mackenzie got an even better launch than in race one to lead from Christian Iddon and Ray. On lap two, Peter Hickman was next to go down along the back straight (Pilgrim's drop).

Tommy Bridewell was the man on the move as he gained third and second place in back-to-back laps from Ray and Iddon, before closing in on race leader Mackenzie. 

Ray struggled to keep pace with the leaders, while Danny Buchan instead joined the front three of Mackenzie, Bridewell and Iddon, however, the order remained the same as Mackenzie held on for victory. 


Tarran Mackenzie claimed his first pole position of the 2021 Bennetts British Superbike season at Brands Hatch, while fellow Scottish rider Rory Skinner came from Q1 to take third. 

Skinner led most of the session but was pipped by Mackenzie with three minutes to go, before Tommy Bridewell also moved ahead of the Kawasaki man into second.

Championship leader Christian Iddon will start race one from seventh position, while qualifying drama for title rival Jason O’Halloran means the Australian will start 18th. O’Halloran crashed after hitting a damp patch at Paddock Hill Bend. 

The second row is made up of Bradley Ray - best qualifying of the season for BMW (fourth), Danny Buchan fifth and Peter Hickman will line-up sixth making the second row an all BMW one. 

Following his double victory at Knockhill, SYNETIQ BMW rider Danny Buchan was fastest on Friday’s combined free practice times, while O’Halloran led the way in a damp FP3 ahead of qualifying.
