Currie scores maiden win

GLENGARRY motorcyclist Ben Currie broke through for his first British Superbike Series victory at Snetterton on Sunday.

The CF Motorsport rider bagged his maiden National Superstock 600 win, holding off a fast finishing Tarran Mackenzie after trading the lead.

“What a weekend it was. I qualified second and came out with the victory,” Currie said.

“Halfway through the race when I had more than a second lead I started losing my head a little bit, making a few mistakes. Taz caught me up and made a real race of it in the last couple of laps.

“I regrouped and put in a great last two laps to bring home the win. Huge thanks to the team what a great job they have been doing.”

Currie’s triumph saw him close to within 13 points of series leader, Mason Law, who crashed out of the Snetterton race.
