SSP: Jack Kennedy Strengthens Title Bid With Mar-Train Racing’s Maiden Victory At Cadwell Park.

Mar-Train Racing’s Jack Kennedy delivered Mar-Train Racing’s maiden victory at Cadwell Park and strengthened the Dubliner’s title bid with his 11th race win of the season.

The Bank Holiday weekend racing started with the Dubliner making a poor race start from pole position and allowed Appleyard Macadam’s Harry Truelove to get the hole shot and stay out in front for the opening laps. 

Jack soon recovered his composure and reeled Truelove in on track to take the lead as the Yamaha riders battled around the fondly known “Mini-Nürburgring” circuit. However, a mistake by Kennedy on lap 10 sent him rolling across the grass and into fourth position, allowing Truelove to regain a commanding lead.  

The Irish man fought his way back and eventually past Bradley Perie and Jack Scott on the final lap to finish race runner-up and take a 111-point lead going into Monday’s Race two.

Race Two saw Kennedy again down in fourth position, but the reigning Supersport Champion fought his way through the pack taking the lead just over midway race distance and to take the chequered flag.

Jack’s victory in Race Two widened his championship advantage by 121 points and secured Mar-Train Racing’s maiden victory at the famous Cadwell Park.

Another amazing weekend on the Mar-Train Yamaha R6. We strong practice sessions and managed to qualify on pole position with the lap time that was under the lap record.
After a very poor start, I managed to get back to the front and pass Harry Truelove. Everything was going to plan, but I made a little error – the first one I’ve made all season – and it ran me straight onto the grass. I managed to save it and come back on in fourth place, before getting the head down and bringing the Mar-Train Racing R6 home in second place. We didn’t lose too many points and I managed to put the bike on pole position for Race Two.
I had a game plan going into race two today, but once again nothing went to plan. We had a great start, but I ended up going backwards into third and fourth, before the safety car came out. After the safety car I knew I need to make a move and fought my way to the front. I managed to keep good pace throughout the race and pulled a bit of a gap right at the end, so I’m delighted to bring it home in first place and keep our championship lead.
This is also the team’s first race win here, so I am delighted for everyone involved and we look forward to Snetterton in two weeks’ time.

Jack and the team done a super job today. Truelove and Perie tried their best to break Jack’s rhythm, but he showed his class in the final laps and managed to break away by over a second.
Onwards and upwards to Snetterton in two weeks’ time, where we will focus on trying to increase our Championship lead further. We are currently sitting at 335 in the Championship – to say I’m delighted is an understatement.
