Honda Racing UK looking forward to Brands Hatch season finale
This weekend (15-17 October) the Honda Racing UK team heads to Brands Hatch for the 2021 Bennetts British Superbike Championship season finale aiming for glory, as Tom Neave leads the way in the Pirelli National Superstock Championship with the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP.
Landing the championship top-spot after the sixth round at Cadwell Park, Tom has fended off challenges from his rivals and goes into the final round with a strong 22-point lead and just one race on Sunday to decide the 2021 season.
Honda Racing's Superbike contenders will be aiming to finish the season off in style at the 2.4-mile Kent circuit, with Glenn Irwin sitting eighth overall in the Showdown standings. For Ryo Mizuno and Takumi Takahashi, it will be the second time they have raced at Brands Hatch, and after mixed results earlier in the year they’ll be looking towards the top-15 and scoring final points to round off the year.
Superbike first practice gets underway at 12:45 on Friday 15 October, with Race 1 taking place on Saturday, and Race 2 and Race 3 on Sunday – the final Superstock race takes place Sunday at 14:30. Click here for the full weekend timetable.
