Bennetts BSB Qualifying: Irwin claims Brands Hatch pole

Saturday, October 15 2022

Glenn Irwin claimed the final Bennetts British Superbike Championship pole position of the season at Brands Hatch this afternoon as the Honda Racing UK rider timed it right to set the fastest lap before a shower halted any further improvements.

Glenn Irwin had moved to the top of the times with seven minutes to go and despite some changes for the chasing positions, the conditions meant that he would remain on top.

Peter Hickman returns to the front row for the FHO Racing BMW team ahead of Tommy Bridewell as the Oxford Products Racing Ducati rider bids to overhaul Glenn Irwin with the pair separated by a single point.

Kyle Ryde will head the second row on the leading Rich Energy OMG Racing Yamaha ahead of Danny Buchan and championship leader Bradley Ray.

Andrew Irwin will start seventh for the Bennetts BSB eBay Sprint Race, just ahead of McAMS Yamaha's Jason O'Halloran and MCE Ducati's Josh Brookes.

Danny Kent completed the top ten for the Buildbase Suzuki team as he nudged Cheshire Mouldings FS-3 Kawasaki's Lee Jackson to eleventh.
