Harrison Leaves Donington Happy Post Beneficial Test Outings

26 times TT podium finisher Dean Harrison left a blustery Donington Park with an upbeat mentality, post an extremely beneficial two days of testing astride his 2024 Honda Racing UK BSB steed.

Overall, tenth fastest, the three times TT winner’s best lap time (1.28.877), put him ahead of the likes of former BSB Champions Leon Haslam and FHO Racing’s Josh Brookes.

Speaking post the final testing event, before the British Superbikes series opener at Circuito De Navarra in Spain, Harrison who completed combined (Saturday, Sunday test sessions) 126 timed laps, stated:

“I genuinely feel happy, that’s one of the fastest lap times I’ve done around here, even in all that wind, on a new bike, so I’m happy.

The bike feels nice, there’s always room for improvement but I am super happy, the biggest change for me has been the difference in power delivery and the way the bike works on the side of the tyre, which is just a bit different to what I’m used to.”

The Oliver’s Mount lap record holder went onto state:

“I think we have been lucky with the weather; I don’t think the wind has helped, but I do think we’ve been lucky to get this much dry time.

We’ve tried loads of different things on the bike, some things worked, and some things didn’t but with my crew chief Lee we have worked well together.

I feel good in myself, and I feel good heading to Navarra (16th-19th April), I know where I need to focus and where we can make some improvements.”
