Kilmacrennan’s Richard Kerr scored more points at the ninth round of the Dickies Supersport Championship at Silverstone at the British Superbike Championship at the weekend.
Kerr maintained his fine run of results in his debut season in the highly competitive Supersport ranks.
The national track at Silverstone was the venue and it was a new circuit to all the riders and it produced some fantastic action in all classes.
Kerr qualified in 13th just 1.5 seconds behind pole man and North West 200 record breaker Alastair Seeley who was making his debut in the class for EHA Racing.
Richard finished in 13th position in race one with his fasted lap less than a second off the quickest of the race. Richard was aiming for that top ten in race 2 and for a great start in lap was running in 12th position when a mechanical problem at the start of lap two forced Richard down to 26th position but with 24 laps remaining Richard kept calm and made his way through the pack and finished in 13th place, a great effort after his earlier misfortune.
Another steady weekend for the team as they continue to gain valuable experience in one of the toughest classes and with riders of the calibre of multiple Northwest 200 winner Seeley and Jack Kennedy former world Supersport podium finisher to name but a few Richard is certainly going in the right direction and the series moves on to Oulton Park Cheshire this weekend where hopefully he can break through to that top ten.
Richard would like to thank Campbell Motorsport and all his loyal sponsors for their continued supportTags:
