Haslam ready to resume BSB battle in Scotland

JG Speedfit Kawasaki's Leon Haslam is looking to extend his lead at the head of the MCE British Superbike Championship in Sunday's fourth round at the Knockhill circuit in Scotland.

“I’m looking forward to this weekend," said Haslam. "It has been a long time since the last race at Oulton Park with the break we have had and I have missed riding.

"I did have the wild card ride in the World Championship and it felt good to be on the podium there. I think going from one specification of machine to the other, it is easier coming back to BSB than when you go the other way because the limits of the bike are easier to find here, it is more down to the rider than the electronics and trusting them.

“The Snetterton test was frustrating for us as I only had a handful of laps, but I know that the team will be ready for Knockhill and we will come out fighting. I really like Knockhill and have some good memories there – I got my first win in the 125 Championship there, won race one last year and was leading race two until I had a problem with my visor. I love the track and coming off the last race at Oulton Park when I didn’t finish because of a crash, I want to bounce back.

“I think going into this weekend the main threat will be Shakey and the Ducati. The standings don’t show because he was out of the Donington races and then had the pace at Brands Hatch and then won at Oulton Park and the next the next two tracks they have tested at already. I believe they will come back strongly this weekend so it is down to us to carry on working hard and concentrate on what we need to do so that we are winning races again.”

Ends.
