The 2021 Bennetts British Superbike Championship is over its halfway point and the countdown to the all-important Showdown is edging closer, with just six races left of the ‘Main Season’ until the top-eight Showdown contenders are decided.
Honda Racing UK is approaching Round 7 this weekend (3-5 September) at Snetterton, quietly confident after a successful outing at the Norfolk circuit in 2020 where Glenn Irwin took a win and a second-place finish. Sitting seventh overall in the standings, Glenn will be looking for a solid point scoring weekend in order to help cement his place within the eight ‘Title Fighters’.
Teammates Ryo Mizuno and Takumi Takahashi are looking forward to returning to Snetterton – the longest circuit on the calendar – after getting a taste of the 2.96-mile track during pre-season testing.
Meanwhile the teams’ Pirelli National Superstock contender Tom Neave heads to Snetterton leading the series by five points after a stunning victory at Cadwell Park. The Norfolk circuit holds happy memories for Tom, after winning the Superstock race in 2020.
Superbike first practice gets underway at 1pm on Friday 3 September, with Race 1 taking place on Saturday and Race 2 and Race 3 on Sunday. Click here for the full timetable.
