DIXON TOPS FINAL MCE BSB PRACTICE AHEAD OF QUALIFYING

Saturday, September 16 2017

Jake Dixon topped the final MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship free practice session at Oulton Park this morning, edging ahead of title rival Josh Brookes and Showdown spoiler Christian Iddon ahead of Datatag Qualifying in Cheshire.

The final free practice session took place on a drying track and as the conditions improved the times continued to tumble with Brookes and Iddon having a spell at the top before the final five minutes when the RAF Regular & Reserves Kawasaki rider toppled Brookes from the top.

Leon Haslam surged up the order in the closing stages to lead the JG Speedfit Kawasaki charge in fourth place, nudging Glenn Irwin back into fifth place ahead of defending champion Shane 'Shakey' Byrne who also was running outside of the top ten earlier in the session.

Peter Hickman was seventh fastest for the Smiths Racing BMW ahead of John Hopkins onboard the Moto Rapido Ducati and James Ellison with Tommy Bridewell completing the top ten, pushing Jason O'Halloran into eleventh.
