Mackenzie and Ryde race to victory at Bennetts BSB Silverstone

Monday, September 07 2020

Tarran Mackenzie and Kyle Ryde shared Bennetts British Superbike Championship spoils at Silverstone at the weekend across a total of three action packed races.

Tarran Mackenzie rode to victory in round seven of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship and in doing so became the sixth different race winner of the season, handing McAMS Yamaha their first victory of 2020.

It was pole position starter Danny Buchan who led the pack into the first corner, with a hard charging Andrew Irwin racing into the lead before the end of the first lap. Glenn Irwin was next to launch an attack, with Jason O'Halloran following suit, demoting Buchan to fourth.

Meanwhile, further down the road Mackenzie wasted no time in cutting his way through the field and by lap 12 the McAMS Yamaha rider was up into third place, before getting ahead of Andrew Irwin a lap later. Mackenzie's efforts continued with a decisive move on lap 16 moving him into the lead where he would stay until the chequered flag, with Ryde securing second and O'Hallloran claiming third.

Ryde celebrated an emotional first race win in round eight of the championship, with the Buildbase Suzuki team becoming the fifth different winning team this season.

Ryde was first off the line, with VisionTrack Ducati's Josh Brookes in close contention with the Australian leading the race after lap two.

However it wasn't to be for Brookes, with Ryde making a move just three laps from the end of the race and took the chequered flag with a 1.686 second gap over Brookes. A strong performance from O'Halloran saw the McAMS Yamaha rider take his second podium of the weekend.

Ryde delivered another outstanding performance in the final Bennetts British Superbike Championship race of the day and took to the top step of the podium once more, claiming a brace of victories at Silverstone.

The youngster charged into the race lead from pole position where he remained until the end of the race. Glenn Irwin and Brookes were next off the line, but O'Halloran soon jumped into the mix and moved into third, before snatching second place by the end of lap three.

O'Halloran found himself defending from Glenn Irwin, with Christian Iddon challenging for podium positions soon after.

At the halfway point of the race Iddon had made a decisive move for second place ahead of O'Halloran, however the final ten laps saw the VisionTrack Ducati rider drop back through the field. Ryde secured his second race win of the weekend, followed by Mackenzie and O'Halloran.
