Shakey leads warm up as Mossey and Dixon crash out

Sunday, July 02 2017

Shane 'Shakey' Byrne led the way in morning warm up for the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship, holding off James Ellison and Jason O'Halloran in a repeat of yesterday's Datatag Qualifying session at Snetterton.

Byrne toppled Ellison from the top to set the pace, but championship leader Luke Mossey crashed out at Nelson unhurt, but the JG Speedfit Kawasaki team now have to rebuild the bike ahead of race one this afternoon.

Leon Haslam was fourth fastest ahead of Josh Brookes and Peter Hickman, with Mossey having to settle for seventh. John Hopkins and the Moto Rapido Ducati team overcame their technical problem from yesterday to end the session eighth fastest ahead of Dan Linfoot and Taylor Mackenzie who completed the top ten.
