Honda Racing hoping for successful weekend at Thruxton

Excitement is mounting at Honda Racing HQ for this weekends seventh round of the MCE British Superbike championship.

The racing will take place from Friday 31st July until Sunday 2nd August at Thruxton circuit in Hampshire. Practice will take place on Friday, followed by qualifying on Saturday and race day on Sunday.

Honda's trio of riders are excitedly gearing up for the race following mixed results from the last round at Brand's Hatch.

Plus Jason O'Halloran competed in this weekends Suzuka 8-hours race in Japan with the Dream RT Sakuari Honda team, which finished in 48th place overall.

Of the upcoming race O'Halloran commented: "I'm really looking forward to getting back on my Fireblade this weekend and heading to a cooler circuit, after racing at the Suzuka 8-Hours on Sunday! Thruxton is a fun circuit to ride and last year I had an exciting race, with solid results, so am looking forward to seeing what I can do on the Superbike. We have some work and changes to try during the practice sessions, and then need to make sure we qualify well to get a good starting position. I'm confident for some top-five finishes this weekend."
