BSB 2015: Oulton Park race one results

Race one results from the third British Superbike round of 2015

TYCO BMW'S Tommy Bridewell has claimed his first win with the team in the opening British Superbike race at Oulton Park, finishing 0.160s ahead of Milwaukee Yamaha's Josh Brookes.

Pole sitter Brookes had the advantage on the YZR-M1 from the start, but Bridewell was quick to make a move and push ahead. Drama on lap one saw Brock Parkes and Jack Kennedy crash at Hizzy's Chicane followed by Danny Buchan at Druids. All riders were unhurt. 

Bridewell attempted to break away from the following pack, which consisted of Brookes, Shane Byrne, Stuart Easton and Ryuichi Kiyonari. It was mainly Brookes who continued to pile the pressure on Bridewell until the end. 

Bridewell took the chequered flag by only 0.16s ahead of Brookes, who was forced to settle for second behind his former team-mate. Byrne managed to hold off his PBM Kawasaki team-mate Easton to claim third and Kiyonari rounded out the top five. 

James Ellison battled with Honda Racing's Jason O'Halloran to claim sixth place for the JG Speedfit Kawasaki Team with Michael Laverty, Howie Mainwaring and Richard Cooper completing the top ten.
