Thruxton BSB: Mackenzie storms to Motostar victory

The Red Bull Rookie rider took a lights to flag victory, with only Joe Francis able to get within half a second of the KTM Moto3 rider before the WD40 Racing rider made a mistake at the Campbell-Cobb sector of the track.

The battle for the 125 victory was far more exciting though with four riders scrapping for the top step on the podium. Tom Carne held the lead for the majority of the race, but it was Peter Sutherland who battle past Ed Rendell, who eventually had to retire due to a mechanical issue, Jordan Weaving and finally Carne to take the 25 points.

Arnie Shelton on the e3 Motorsport Honda came through sixth home, fourth in the 125 category, ahead of Catherine Green and Elliot Lodge. The final spot on the Moto3 podium was claimed by James Hobson, after Joe Irving crashed out of third place with just four laps remaining.
