BSB Supports – Donington: Junior Supersport sweep for Jenner

In BSB Support, News

OWEN Jenner doubled up with a Sunday clean sweep in the Hel Performance Junior Supersport ranks as he leaves Donington Park on perfect points.

The Massingberd Mundy/Affinity Sports Kawasaki rider beat Jason Crump this morning and Brody Crockford this afternoon in two typically tight JSS scraps as he now leads the championship.

Crump was the quickest to Redgate in race one as he led the pack from the off, but Crockford and Jenner kept him in check with the front three packed tightly together ahead of a close seven-rider train.

Crockford and Jenner both had stabs at the lead but at half distance it was still Crump in charge when the safety car was deployed on lap eight for a number of incidents including Kier Armstrong and Rossi Banham.

As the safety car headed back into the pits with less than five laps remaining, it was still Crump leading the pack. But former Team Green Junior cup champ Jenner levered him aside and just as Crockford was shuffled back in the pack, Scotsman Declan Connell slipped ahead of Crump and with the fastest lap of the race, quickly caught up to Jenner.

But with one lap remaining, it was all change in the fight for the podium as Lynden Leatherland was shuffled back after running on at the chicane.

And after Connell tipped off on the exit of the Old Hairpin, red flags were thrown with less than half a lap to go, giving Jenner victory by half a second with Crump and Adon Davie completing the podium.

It was all the usual suspects back in the front of race two this afternoon as Crump, Crockford and Jenner swapped places at the front.

Five laps in, it looked like the trio was breaking away, but a gaggle of youngsters behind – including Osian Jones, Lynden Leatherland, Cam Dawson, Zak Shelton, Adon Davie and Ash Barnes – were making inroads on the front three.

With just a few laps remaining, Crescent Yamaha’s Crockford had stretched a 0.7sec lead, but it was short-lived as Jenner reeled him in and took the lead with Crump dropping to fourth as Jones made a pass for third.

As the pack hit the line to begin the final lap, Crockford took control but after testing the track limits on the grass at the chicane, it was Jenner whose last-ditch effort paid off as he scored win number two over Crockford and MSS Performance rider Crump.

Symcirrus boys Jones and Oscar Pinson, brother of reigning Junior Supersport champ Elliott, rounded out the top five.
