HASLAM SAILS TO RACE TWO WIN
Leon Haslam historically wins at every race track on the calendar this year, completing his season's success with his first ever win on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit on a Kawasaki.
O’Halloran bolted off the slippery line and led Haslam and rookie, Andrew Irwin, into turn one. However, the deceiving rain drops would without a doubt claim a number of victims, starting with the younger of the Ulstermen brothers, snatching Andrew from a podium place.
Haslam ran at the front of the group of six, and became a dominant figure within the battle of O’Halloran, Tommy Bridewell, Christian Iddon, Jake Dixon, James Ellison and himself.
The Australian was the only man who managed to match Haslam’s pace as they swapped positions at the front. Much unlike Britain's Ellison, who despite his efforts, suffered a violent high-side after trying to sustain the pace of the front-runners. However, to the surprise of the newly crowned BSB Champion, Dixon soared past his competitors to the front of the pack for a short stint before tumbling through the gravel traps at Clearways.
Haslam led Bridewell and O’Halloran to the chequered flag, while Richard Cooper and Christian Iddon rounded out the top five.
