22 Apr BSB Brands Hatch: Double Victory for Ellison
James Ellison scored the double victory this weekend at Brands Hatch.
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.
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.”
Gaerne sponsored rider, Ryuichi Kiyonari, also had a good weekend and came 4th in both races.
