Glenn Irwin says his sensational maiden British Supersport victory at Brands Hatch is the perfect confidence-booster for the remainder of the season.

The Carrickfergus rider held it all together in challenging conditions in the opening Sprint race of the season at the 1.2-mile Indy circuit in Kent to wrap up a dream success only two years after making his debut in the series.

Irwin started from pole position and after battling with Luke Jones (Triumph) and Jake Dixon (Yamaha) – who crashed out of third place on the final lap – the 24-year-old found something extra in the closing stages to hold off Jones and take a landmark victory by 0.173 seconds.
