Road Racer’s Adventures: BSB Knockhill

Road Racer’s Adventures: BSB Knockhill

Let’s be honest, going from TT racing to the sub 1.3 miles long Knockhill course, will always prove challenging for those who’s race season mix the roads with BSB, support Championships competition.

For Honda Racing UK’s Dean Harrison, last weekend’s race endeavours in Scotland didn’t entirely go to plan. Admitting it was a frustrating Knockhill racing stint, he said:

“Honestly, I’ve had a frustrating weekend all in all. The frustrating thing is the lads are good, the bike’s good. I’ve been poor basically.

This sounds like a poor excuse, but I felt off all weekend and I’ve just not got my head into any of it really. So, I look quite a bit lost, because the potential of the bike obviously speaks for itself.

So, I’m going to put this one down to experience and start again next time.”

Fellow TT luminaries, Monster Energy FHO Racing BMW’s Josh Brookes, Peter Hickman also had varying fortunes, results.

In Senior TT winner Davey Todd though, this wasn’t the case as the now third quickest rider in TT Races history, increased his National Superstock 1000 Championship-lead to 25 points, after second, first place finishes.

The second stock 1000 encounter saw the six times NW200 race winner finish over eight seconds clear out front.

Leading the challenge to Cheshire Mouldings BMW’s Todd was Simon Reid, son of twice Formula 2 World Champion Brian Reid.

Got to mention additionally Richard Cooper’s authoritative National Sportsbike victories plus the positive results obtained by NW200 wins record-holder Alastair Seeley, taking third, fourth place finishes from Supersport racing circulations.
