Jones targets more winning success as Kennedy bids to bounce back

Brad Jones claimed his first Dickies British Supersport Championship race win last time out at Oulton Park for the Integro Yamaha team as his teammate Jack Kennedy’s winning streak ended after victory in the Sprint race.

Jones maintained his impressive run of podium point scoring finishes in every race this season so far, culminating in his first victory in the Feature race at Oulton Park after Kennedy crashed out of the action. The defending champion still has a 37-point lead in the standings with six races remaining.

Alastair Seeley holds third in the standings but he will sit out the Assen event after a crash left him with a broken wrist and requiring surgery. However he has a healthy advantage over Harry Truelove in fourth position, who now only holds a four point gap over Richard Kerr following his podium finish in Cheshire.

James Westmoreland was back on the podium for the Gearlink Kawasaki team last time out but he will be on World Endurance Championship duties thus weekend, so former Dutch and European champion Rob Hartog lines up for the team.     

Finnish rider Eemeli Lahti will also feature on the grid this weekend as there is no Superstock 1000 action at Assen; joining the Sterkman Motorsport by HRP team, with whom he claimed a victory during his previous Assen attack in the Supersport class.

  1. Jack Kennedy (Integro Yamaha) 370
