Glenn Irwin was back to winning ways as he took advantage of Ducati power and the narrow nature of Cadwell Park in the round eight sprint race.
Rider Glenn Irwin, representing Beer Monster Ducati, defied expectations by securing a front row position for the sprint race at Cadwell Park. Despite the dominance of Yamaha riders Jason O’Halloran, Ryan Vickers, and Kyle Ryde in the practice sessions, Irwin managed to find a way past them on the difficult Lincolnshire circuit. Irwin emphasized the importance of making a good start in order to overtake his competitor Leon Haslam. However, mechanical issues eventually hindered Haslam’s chances of reaching the podium. Irwin faced challenges due to bike issues and an uncomfortable track, resulting in a defensive riding style to maintain his lead. Ultimately, Irwin claimed his first win at Cadwell Park, with Ryde making a late pass to secure second place.
