This weekend sees the Bennetts British Superbike championship make its return after a five week gap, and this weekend the series rolls up to Snetterton circuit in Norwich. It will be a full stable of machines in action for Team #109, after Kevin Keyes flying the flag solo for the past two events in the Pirelli Superstock 600 class at both the third round of the British championship, as well as the World Superbike event at Donington Park last month.
Dickies Junior Supersport championship leader Eunan McGlinchey will be back after an almost two month break, but will have a new teammate in the class, with 2017 Irish Supertwin champion Simon Reid joining the team for this round, with Dubliner Brendan Glover ruled out due to education commitments.
Following on from a difficult weekend at Donington Park last time out, Keyes will be hoping for an upturn in fortunes this weekend at the Norwich track. McGlinchey has been keeping busy away from the track for almost two months and will be hoping to pick up where he left off at Brands Hatch Indy, where he scored three podiums from three races last time out. Glover is unfortunately unable to compete this weekend due to school exams, which will see Simon Reid, current Irish Supersport competitor, and son of two-time world champion Brian Reid, keep his seat warm for him.
Team #109 are excited to have a full stable of bikes back in action once again this weekend, and we can’t wait to get things underway once again on Friday morning for free practice.
