BSB Supports – Brands Hatch: Champ Skinner wins Supersport finale

In News

TYSERS Yamaha’s Rory Skinner stamped his authority on the Quattro British Supersport championship with victory in today’s 2020 finale.

The Scotsman, who clinched the championship last time out at Donington Park, dominated the race after getting by his team-mate Brad Jones as he ended his dominant season with a win.

But it was Harry Truelove who grabbed an early lead as Jones, Ben Currie and Skinner tucked into the top four with Diamond H Racing’s Bradley Perie chasing in fifth.

Skinner soon found a way through on Gearlink Kawasaki man Currie, but it was disaster for Truelove moments into lap four as he ran wide at Druids, droppping to third before out-braking himself into Graham Hill, which tossed him over the top and sent him flying onto the grass.

As a result, Jones jumped straight into the lead before Skinner stuck his nose in front as the two Tysers boys stretched a lead.

But by lap 11 of 16, Skinner was running away as he stretched a nearly two-second advantage over his team-mate, leaving Jones, Perie and Currie to dice for rostrum honours.

Meanwhile, the battle for GP2 honours received a shake-up as series leader Jack Scott crashed out on the Harris machine, leaving Spirit Moto Corsa’s Mason Law to take over the championship lead.

As Skinner cruised to victory four seconds up the road, Perie emerged victorious from the three-way battle behind as he clinched second place just 0.070sec ahead of Jones, who was a mere 0.040sec clear of fourth-placed Currie.
