Twin podiums for Currie

GLENGARRY motorcyclist abroad Ben Currie made it two podiums from as many starts on the British Superbikes circuit at Brands Hatch on 19 April.

After achieving his first podium finish in the season opener, Currie scored another second place finish in the National Superstock 600cc Championship.

Currie qualified on the front row of the grid and converted his position into championship points, leaving him just 10 adrift of series leader Mason Law ahead of round three at Oulton Park next month.

The Gippslander missed out on his maiden first place finish by 0.075 seconds in a nail biting finish.

His race was initially stopped following a serious accident involving two riders who were airlifted to hospital.

“The race was a lot of fun with battles right to the line,” Currie said.

“Mason rode an awesome race and made it hard for me to pass with our last lap going under the lap record, so I am happy to walk away with second, it’s good for the championship.

“Thoughts and prayers are with the fallen riders in the race.”

The National Superstock 600cc series is a support class to the BSB, one of the premier motorcycling championships in the world.
