Free Practice

Glenn Irwin topped the final Bennetts British Superbike free practice session of the weekend thanks to a new lap record.

Jason O’Halloran was second fastest - +0.042s behind the Honda rider, while McAMS Yamaha team-mate Tarran Mackenzie was third.

On day-one it was Peter Hickman who was fastest aboard the FHO Racing BMW after he too had gone underneath the BSB Donington Park lap record.

Ryan Vickers continued his good form from Thruxton to finish third, while Christian Iddon was fourth. One spot back was team-mate Josh Brookes who has changed from the #1 plate to his #25 this weekend.
