Shakey takes the first win of the year from Lowes & Brookes.

Race red flagged on the final lap due to a crash. Ellison gets a ride through but sets fastest lap so on pole for R2. Brookes makes an interesting comment after the race

Been a great Day from Brands Hatch so far, I've been enjoying all of the races in fact, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Superstock 1000 just now, how on earth John McGuinnes kept hold of that Bike and avoided a high side was incredible, and it cost him the race too, which was a shame as I would have loved to see him winning it, but he seemed happy to be on the Podium in his post race interview.........

Back to the racing, methinks.......

Ellison wins R2 from Lowes with Shakey third after running off track a few laps from the end while making a move for the lead.

Great to see Ellison take the win

Utterly terrific racing - as usual. Even the weather was tolerable: woolly hat not needed until late in the day.

The Supersport category must offer the most ferocious racing of any category, two wheeled or four. Seeley and Wilson in particular never cease to amaze with feisty but clean battles.

Wilson looks miserable even when he wins but with Seeley as a "team-mate" he looks like he is due to hang tomorrow.......

What a strange mixed up Grid for the 1st BSB race today here at Thruxton, after qualifying was cancelled yesterday, worked out well for Alex Lowes though........

Another win for Shakey Byrne in the second BSB race, but it was Red Flagged after a nasty accident. Lets hope the Riders concerned are O.K.........

Great opening race I thought, pity Shakey Byrne crashed out, as it was getting close between him and Alex Lowes, who ended up as a bit of a runaway winner in fact. He's certainly enjoying racing at the moment, he can't stop grinning when being interviewed, and he probably has good cause too, as he's now top of the Champoinship as well. Good second place for James Ellison, and a 3rd place for Josh Brookes to complete the Podium.......

Hope they can put Shakey's Bike back together for the 2nd race now, as due to the " One Bike " rule, be a shame if he's not on the Grid........

Great 2nd BSB race indeed, Shakey Byrne's bike was rebuilt in time, and he flew around the Circuit straight from the start, just about holding off the challenge of Josh Brookes and Alex Lowes, to take a well deserved victory, and secure his 45th win in the BSB races.......

Alex Lowes still leads the Championship though, but only by ONE point after today.....

Fantastic crowd here today too........

Knockhill up next then, albeit a good couple of weeks away.......

He looked so much at ease with is Bike all through the 2nd race, and thoroughly deserved his victory.......

He seems totally lost at the moment, which is a real shame........
