British Superbikes 2015 - Round 2 - Brands Hatch

James Ellison vowed to battle for two race wins ahead of the second round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch and the JG Speedfit Kawasaki rider kept his promise to score his first double victory in the series.

Ellison had taken the advantage on the opening lap to lead from his second pole position of the day, but Ryuichi Kiyonari, Shane 'Shakey' Byrne and Josh Brookes were in close contention as they bid to halt the JG Speedfit Kawasaki rider.

Byrne was soon hassling Kiyonari as the multiple champions battled for second place and on the fifth lap the PBM Kawasaki rider was able to make a move on the inside of Paddock Hill Bend to move ahead of his Buildbase BMW rival.

The quartet at the front had started to break away and Brookes was clearly keen to make a move on Kiyonari too. The Australian was able to take advantage of a mistake at Druids from the Japanese ace on the tenth lap to move to third when Kiyonari ran wide.

Ellison had again set an impressive pace to gap Byrne, Brookes and Kiyonari behind him, but when Danny Johnson crashed the Morello Racing Kawasaki at Clearways the Nissan GT-R Safety Car was back on track before the final nine lap dash to the finish on the 1.2-mile Indy circuit.

As the race resumed Ellison knew his rivals were going to try and attack instantly; the JG Speedfit Kawasaki rider fired away at the line to edge a 0.356s lead at the finish as Byrne managed to hold off the hard-charging Brookes as the pair returned to the podium.

Ellison said: "We came here after Donington Park where we were so unlucky after winning the first race and then having a problem in race two, so this is a really good feeling. We have learnt a lot from that disappointment and the changes we have had for this weekend made a big difference.

"This weekend has been the best I've ever done and now I hope we can keep it going like this across the year because in other seasons we have started strongly but have not been able to hold it together. It is a good feeling to walk away from Brands Hatch with two wins, as particularly in the second race, Shakey (Byrne) was closing in a bit and he made me work hard."

Kiyonari was forced to settle for fourth, but moved up into the top six in the standings with his performances.

Stuart Easton returned to the top five ahead of Tommy Bridewell who equalled his best performance for the Tyco BMW team in sixth place. Howie Mainwaring fended off the challenge from Danny Buchan to claim seventh, whilst Australian's Billy McConnell and Jason O'Halloran completed the top ten.

The 2014 Isle of Man TT Festival was held between Saturday 24 May and Friday 6 June 2014 on the 37.73-mile Mountain Course in the Isle of Man. The 2014 Isle of Man TT Races consisted of six sole motor-cycle races and two sidecar races and also included the Pre-TT Classic Races held on 23, 24 & 26 May 2014 on the Billown Circuit in Castletown. The Isle of Man Post-TT Races due to be held on 7 June 2014 were cancelled by race organisers on safety grounds due to a thunderstorm and heavy overnight rain.

The Blue Riband event of the 2014 Isle of Man TT Races, the Senior TT race was won by Michael Dunlop emulating the 75th Anniversary of the only solo Isle of Man TT race victory by a factory BMW Motorrad machine, recorded by Georg Schorsch Meier during the 1939 500cc Senior Isle of Man TT Race. The 2014 Isle of Man TT Races were again dominated by Michael Dunlop, repeating his feat during the 2013 Isle of Man TT Races of four race wins within a week riding a 1000cc BMW machine in the Superbike TT and Superstock TT classes and a 600cc Honda in Supersport TT Race 2. The 2014 Joey Dunlop TT Championship was won for the second consecutive year by Michael Dunlop with 116 points, from Bruce Anstey with 82 points and Dean Harrison in third place scoring 54 points.

The Supersport TT Race 1 was won by Gary Johnson riding a three-cylinder 675cc Triumph at an average race speed of 124.526 mph. This was the first victory by a British machine since Bruce Anstey, also riding a Triumph machine, won the 2003 600cc Junior TT Race. The 2014 TT Zero Race was won by John McGuinness at an average race speed of 117.366 mph, raising his tally of Isle of Man TT race wins to 21 and also the first win in the Isle of Man TT Races electric motor-cycle category for the Shinden San / Mugen factory team.

The Sidecar TT produced another maiden winner, as the 2014 Sidecar TT Race 1 was won by Conrad Harrison/Mike Aylott riding a Shelbourne Honda 600cc outfit at an average race speed of 113.987 mph. The 2014 Lightweight TT Race also produced another maiden winner for Dean Harrison after the race favourite and the fastest in practice, Ivan Lintin retired on lap 1 at Union Mills with an electrical problem. With his father Conrad Harrison winning the Sidecar Race 1 and Dean Harrison the Lightweight Race this was the first occasion of father/son winners in different classes of an Isle of Man TT race during the same race meeting.

The 2014 Sidecar TT Race 2 was won by Dave Molyneux/Patrick Farrance riding a 600cc DMR Kawasaki outfit at an average race speed of 113.147 mph, raising his number of Isle of Man TT wins to 17 victories and also Dave Molyneux celebrated the 25th anniversary of his first win in the 1989 Isle of Man TT Sidecar Race 'A' with passenger Colin Hardman at an average race speed of 104.56 mph.

A new overall course lap record was set by Bruce Anstey, with a lap time of 17 minutes, 06.682 seconds at an average speed of 132.298 mph during lap 6 of the 2014 Superbike TT Race. A further race lap record was set by Michael Dunlop, recording a new class record for the Senior TT class of 17 minutes, 11.591 seconds, at an average speed of 131.668 mph. The Vernon Cooper Trophy for the fastest Newcomer was won by Peter Hickman, riding a 1000cc BMW motor-cycle, during lap 6 of the Senior TT with a time of 17 minutes, 32.078 seconds at an average speed of 129.104 mph.

As with the 2013 Isle of Man TT Races the first part of the 2014 Practice Week was again dominated by inclement weather with the first evening session on Saturday 24 May were cancelled due to heavy rain and mist on the Mountain Section of the course. The Tuesday evening practice was curtailed after an incident at Kerrowmoar with a sidecar outfit. The Wednesday session on the 28 May were held in cloudy and overcast conditions and were again red-flagged due to an incident at Barregarrow after the solo competitors had completed only one lap. The rest of the Wednesday evening session was cancelled after rainfall returned to the northern sections of the Snaefell Mountain Course. The Sidecar class started the Thursday evening session and the session was again red-flagged after 20 minutes due to a civilian medical emergency in the Quarterbridge area of Douglas. After the practice session restarted the start of the solo practice session was again delayed due to another incident with a sidecar outfit at Pinfold Cottage near Ramsey with the crew receiving minor injuries. In contrast, the Friday evening practice session was held in good weather and a number of solo competitors completing five laps of the Mountain Course.

The 2014 Isle of Man TT Festival held a Lap of Honour of the Snaefell Mountain Course in memory of Simon Andrews after suffering a fatal crash during the 1000cc Superstock event of the 2014 North West 200 Races. A fatal accident to veteran Manx Grand Prix and Isle of Man TT competitor Bob Price occurred at Ballaugh Bridge during the 2014 Supersport Race 1. The former British Supersport champion Karl Harris crashed fatally at the 26th Milestone while competing in the 2014 Superstock Race.
