Tommy Bridewell wins his first British Superbike race of 2021 ahead of Glenn and Andrew Irwin.

Christian Iddon suffered a second consecutive DNF – 70 points down on championship leader Jason O’Halloran who was only able to claim 12th, while second in the standings Tarran Mackenzie finished seventh.
