Tommy Bridewell wins his first British Superbike race of 2021 ahead of Glenn and Andrew Irwin. 

The race was red-flagged after just three laps due to rain, however, Bridewell who was using an intermediate front for the first time in his career put in a dominant display once the race restarted as he came from the second row. 

Christian Iddon suffered a second consecutive DNF - 70 points down on championship leader Jason O’Halloran who was only able to claim 12th, while second in the standings Tarran Mackenzie finished seventh.
