Newly crowned champion Leon Haslam won Race 2 in the final Showdown weekend at Brands Hatch as chaos took hold in wet conditions.

The JG Speedfit Kawasaki rider, who sealed his maiden BSB crown on Saturday, held off Tommy Bridewell, with crashes coming thick and fast throughout the 20 laps, to pick up his first ever win at the Grand Prix circuit.
