Glenn Irwin takes his second victory of the weekend, bringing the gap down to championship leader Tommy Bridewell.

For race two at Cadwell Park BMW’s Leon Haslam was on Pole Position, joining Leon on the front row was Kawasaki’s Lee Jackson in second place, with Yamaha’s Kyle Ryde in third place.

Lights out and it was Ryan Vickers who lead the field of 21 British Superbike riders into turn one, Storm Stacey got into third place. Haslam took the lead at Park, Kyle Ryde was pushed back to fifth place after his front row start.

Vickers took control of the race after lap one, Storm was still holding on to third place, Ryde was in fourth place just in front of Lee Jackson. Yesterday’s race winner Glenn Irwin was in eighth place with his team-mate in ninth place.

Bridewell went straight on at the Chicane, the Ducati man was now running in tenth place. Vickers was the fastest man on track, Leon was shadowing the Yamaha rider, just waiting to make his move! Ryde was in third place and catching the leading duo. Jason O’Halloran was battling for fourth place with Storm and Lee Jackson.

Vickers crashed out at Park on lap seven! Handing the lead to Haslam, Ryde was in second and looking strong. Peter Hickman pulled into the pits, more disappointment for the FHO Racing rider.

Jackson caught the leading duo and slipped underneath Kyle for second place. O’Halloran and Glenn Irwin were catching the leaders with nine laps remaining to the race. Lee made a move for the lead at Charlies one, the move caught Haslam out allowing Kyle to take second place from the BMW rider.

By lap 11 there was an eight way freight train at the front of the field, Glenn was in fourth place itching to pass Haslam. Kyle passed Jackson to take control of the race, Glenn passed Haslam for third place; a risky move from Glenn but he made it stick.

Lee was putting the pressure on Ryde with just two laps left, Glenn made a swooping move at Park and was in second place. Jack Kennedy crashed out at Park, not what the Mar-Train rider needed! On the final lap Glenn took the lead at the start finish straight, O’Halloran made a tricky move on Jackson and was in third place.

Glenn crossed the line to take his second win of the weekend, Ryde was second, O’Halloran finished in third place, Haslam was fourth, Bridewell was fifth. There is just 12.5 points between championship leader Bridewell and his team-mate Glenn Irwin.
