Bennetts BSB Race 3: Buchan conquers Cadwell with double

Monday, August 29 2022

Danny Buchan fired himself back into Bennetts British Superbike Championship Showdown contention with a double win for SYNETIQ BMW at Cadwell Park to claim the Pirelli King of the Mountain title.

Buchan out dragged his rivals into Coppice for the first time, leading the pack from Bradley Ray, Jason O'Halloran and Tommy Bridewell, but it soon became a three-way battle for the lead.

Buchan once again was trying to make a break, gradually edging out an advantage over Ray, whose podium haul has put him to within two points of O'Halloran in the podium points tally, which will prove crucial after the next races at Snetterton and the start of the Showdown.

Buchan was able to hold the edge over Ray for the second time today with Bridewell's double podium catapulting him up to sixth in the standings and closing in on Glenn Irwin ahead of him as he strengthened his Showdown chances.

There was an intense battle for fourth in the race with a seven-way scrap for the position with Leon Haslam emerging ahead of Rory Skinner, whose top five finish cemented his place in the Showdown for the first time.

Peter Hickman was sixth on the FHO Racing BMW, dropping one place in the standings to tenth as Buchan's double win elevated him into ninth ahead of his home round of Snetterton.

Andrew Irwin bagged a hard-fought seventh place ahead of brother Glenn, with O'Halloran ended ninth ahead of his McAMS Yamaha teammate Tarran Mackenzie.

Lee Jackson was issued a 10 second time penalty for a jump start which resulted in him finishing in 12th place.
