Scott Redding ruled the Bennetts British Superbike Championship action at Donington Park today, doubling up on victories to maintain the lead in the Showdown standings ahead of the Brands Hatch title decider.

At the start of the race Brookes got a flying start off the line to lead the pack into Redgate for the first time ahead of Christian Iddon and Redding, with the second placed Tyco BMW rider trying to dive for the lead at Craner Curves before the 2015 champion instantly cut back into the lead.

As Redding moved into second a lap later to force ahead of Iddon, further down the field Billy McConnell crashed out unhurt at the Esses, leaving gravel across the circuit. The BMW Safety Car was deployed and as the pack lined up Brookes had the advantage from Redding, Tommy Bridewell, Peter Hickman, Iddon and Danny Buchan as the Showdown Title Fighters were locked together.
