Knockhill nods to Honda Racing UK for crazy…

This weekend (June 17-19), the Honda Racing UK team returns to action in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship after competing in the Isle of Man TT Races, round four of the British Superbike Series taking place on the Scottish circuit of Knockhill.

Glenn Irwin comes into the weekend having made his TT racing debut aboard the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP, where he established himself as the fastest TT newcomer of all time. Now that his Isle of Man debut is behind him, the focus is back on BSB where he is currently sixth overall and will look to regain his winning form which saw him claim victory in the three races in the season opener at Silverstone.

For BSB rookie Tom Neave, Knockhill is one of his favorite circuits, but this weekend will be his first time riding the Fireblade Superbike on the 1.27 mile track. After sitting out the final race last time out, suffering concussion side effects and some time off between rounds, Tom will be looking to score points to add to his championship tally.

After spending a few weeks at home in Japan, Ryo Mizuno and Takumi Takahashi arrive in Scotland with a view to the top 15, having scored their first points of the 2022 season in the final round.

The first Superbike practice will start on Friday (June 17) at 13:00, with Race 1 on Saturday (June 18). Race 2 and Race 3 will take place on Sunday June 19. Click on here for the full weekend schedule.
