BSB 2019 | Thruxton Round 7 Preview and TV Guide

After a two-week summer break in the programme, Bennetts BSB returns this weekend at the Thruxton in Hampshire. But don't think it's been a holiday for the riders though as many of them competed in last weekend's Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race.

In case you didn’t catch the last race at Snetterton - or, like me, your memory is just a bit rubbish -  here's what happened:

BSB

Despite it being only the second time he'd ridden the track, BeWiser Ducati's Scott Redding had a storming weekend, taking pole position, setting fastest laps and taking the win in both races.

The fast sweeping track certainly suited the Ducatis as BeWiser team-mate Josh Brookes took two second places while Oxford Ducati's Tommy Bridewell took a third in Race Two to give Ducati an impressive one-two-three. Tarran Mackenzie's third place in Race One showed that his early season form was no fluke.

Redding's double now puts him 38 points ahead of Bridewell and 41 ahead of Brookes in the championship, but with each weekend worth atleast 50 points, Redding's lead could soon be eroded.

In a surprise mid-season switch, Keith Farmer, out for the rest of the season despite recovering well from two broken legs sustained at Knockhill, has been replaced at Tyco BMW by Glenn Irwin after he parted ways with JG Speedfit Kawasaki. Hector Barbara is confirmed to be replacing him at Kawasaki for Thruxton.

Supersport 

Integro Yamaha’s Jack Kennedy took the opening spoils in the Dickies British Supersport sprint race, with team-mate, Brad Jones, taking second place ahead of EHA Racing's Alastair Seeley, who completed the podium.

In the feature race Kennedy showed his dominance again, winning by over seven seconds, from Seeley. In a reversal of the sprint race, Alastair Seeley led Brad Jones over the line, cementing his second position in the championship.
