O’Halloran was trying his best to find a gap to pass Kyle, the LAMI OMG rider was riding very defensive and wasn’t giving Jason any chances. Tommy Bridewell was catching the leading trio with seven laps to go.
Jason passed Kyle but it wasn’t for long, then Glenn Irwin passed both Jason and Ryde on the start finish straight to take the lead. What had the Yamaha riders got left to take back control of the race. O’Halloran made a launch at the Hairpin but the Australian ran wide which enabled Bridewell to take third place.
