MCE BSB: Oulton Park - Round Three - Race One
Leon Haslam has bagged his third win of the 2017 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship season, fending off Shane 'Shakey' Byrne who scored his first podium finish of the year, with Luke Mossey completing the top three.
Haslam took the lead and successfully managed his tyres throughout the race, able to hold off the chasing Byrne and Mossey throughout. The JG Speedfit Kawasaki rider also had a little bit extra over the last few laps and pulled a 2.6s gap on five-time champion Byrne.
An emerging battle behind the leading three saw Jason O'Halloran emerge on top, taking a fourth place finish on the last lap from Smiths Racing's Peter Hickman. Ellison finished in sixth and as the top Yamaha rider, with Josh Brookes finishing in seventh. Christian Iddon, Glenn Irwin and Jake Dixon completed the top ten.
