The Honda Racing UK team is looking forward to a short commute this Bank Holiday weekend (27-29 August), as round seven of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship takes place at their home round at Cadwell Park.
Just 7.2 miles from Honda Racing UK HQ in Louth, Cadwell Park is a firm favourite for the team, as well as Lincolnshire-born Tom Neave, with Glenn Irwin, Ryo Mizuno and Takumi Takahashi also looking forward to racing at the teams local track.
Last year at the 2.25-mile circuit, both Glenn and Tom secured Pole Positions in BSB and the Pirelli National Superstock Championship aboard the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP, with Tom going on to claim victory in the Superstock class.
Glenn’s consistency in the championship has moved him up to fifth in the overall standings and with just six races remaining before the Showdown, he’s targeting strong results across the three Cadwell races to retain a place in the top eight.
To mix things up over the weekend a one-lap Superpole is set to return, which will see the qualifying format start on Saturday with the standard SUPERPICKS Free Practice session, with the top 12 overall on combined times going directly into the Superpole starting list.
The remaining riders from 13th and above will take part in the 15-minute SUPERPICKS qualifying session, with the top three added to the final Superpole starting list of 15 riders. Fighting it out to claim the Pole Position spot, the riders will be released at two-minute intervals for their out lap, flying lap and cool down lap.
Superbike first practice gets underway on Saturday (27 August) at 11.00, with Race 1 on Sunday (28 August). Race 2 and 3 will take place on Bank Holiday Monday (29 August). Click here for the full weekend timetable.
