BRADLEY Perie stretched his Quattro British Supersport lead this afternoon with a masterclass performance to win today’s feature race.
The Appleyard Macadam Yamaha rider took the lead early on before dominating proceedings to take victory by 5.098sec
Dynavolt Triumph rider Kyle Smith made another blinding start on the 765 machine as race one winner Perie, Lee Johnston, Korie McGreevy and Ben Currie tucked into the top five.
By lap three, Perie had found a way through on Smith to take the lead as the Cumbrian set about trying to stretch a gap.
Further back, former champ Jack Kennedy was beginning to make inroads on the top five as he moved up ahead of Gearlink man Currie before eclipsing Mar-Train’s McGreevy to take over fourth. Up in the fight for second, Ashcourt man Johnston passed Smith for the runner-up spot but by then, Perie was nearly two seconds up the road.
As Kennedy forced his way past Smith to take over third, TT winner Johnston was holding the gap to Perie but the points leader’s advantage then began to grow and with just 10 laps to go, he had more than three seconds to work with.
With Perie taking the flag by more than five seconds, Kennedy caught up to Johnston and got the better of the roads ace on the final lap, before Johnston hit back and held off the Dubliner to take the runner-up spot by less than three tenths of a second. Just behind, Kovara Projects/RS Racing’s Charlie Nesbitt took a convincing GP2 class win in fourth overall.
