This weekend (17-19 June) the Honda Racing UK team returns to its Bennetts British Superbike Championship duties after being in action at the Isle of Man TT Races, with the fourth round of the British Superbike series taking place at Scotland’s Knockhill circuit.
Glenn Irwin heads into the weekend having enjoyed his debut at the TT Races aboard the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP, where he secured himself as the fastest-ever TT newcomer. Now with his Isle of Man debut behind him, the focus is back to BSB where he’s currently sixth in the overall standings and will be looking to return his winning form, which saw him storm to victory in all three races at the Silverstone season opener.
For BSB rookie Tom Neave, Knockhill is one of his favourite circuits, however this weekend will be the first time he’s ridden the Superbike-spec Fireblade at the 1.27-mile track. Having sat out of the final race last time out, suffering with concussion side effects and with some time off between rounds, Tom will be looking for some point scoring finishes to add to his championship tally.
Having enjoyed a few weeks home in Japan Ryo Mizuno and Takumi Takahashi arrive in Scotland looking towards the top-15, having scored their first points of the 2022 season at the last round.
Superbike first practice gets underway on Friday (17 June) at 13.00, with Race 1 on Saturday (18 June). Race 2 and Race 3 will take place on Sunday (19 June). Click here for the full weekend timetable.
