This weekend (20-22 August), the Honda Racing UK team is looking forward to being back on their home turf, as Cadwell Park returns after two years, with the sixth round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship taking place at the Lincolnshire circuit.
Just days after leaving Donington Park, the Honda team will be looking to continue where they left off at the previous round with Glenn Irwin back on the podium and Tom Neave taking his first win in 2021 aboard the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP.
Back on home soil and hoping to continue their good form of late, this will be the debut race weekend for the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP at Cadwell, where Glenn will be looking to add to his podium credits after finishing second at Thruxton and taking two second place finishes at Donington Park’s National Circuit.
Glenn’s Japanese teammates Ryo Mizuno and Takumi Takahashi will tackle the famous Cadwell ‘Mountain’ for the first time under race conditions at the weekend, but have managed to get some crucial time at the 2.18-mile circuit with some track days in the run-up to the sixth round.
Local-lad Tom is eager to get going at his home race and having boosted his points in the Pirelli National Superstock Championship with a win and a second place at Donington, he’s now sitting second in the standings, joint on points (113) with current leader Alex Olsen.
Superbike first practice gets underway at 11am on Friday 20 August, with Race 1 taking place on Saturday and Race 2 and Race 3 on Sunday. Click here for the full timetable.
