Shakey ready to cause a stir at Brands Hatch

Tuesday, April 19 2011

Shane 'Shakey' Byrne is back in BSB and the former double champion means business for the HM Plant Honda team as he bids to equal the record of his new team-mate Ryuichi Kiyonari with a third MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship title.

Byrne admits he can't wait to return to his home track after two seasons away in the World Superbike Championship and knows that it is going to be vital to get his season off to a flying start to get the edge on his title rivals.

Shakey said: "It's been a long winter but I am really ready to race now. I have said from the outset that the HM Plant Honda team know how to make the Fireblade work; they have won titles so we know the potential we have ahead of this season. Myself and Kiyo have been working together in testing and we have been heading in a very similar direction in terms of set up, but now testing is done and it is down to business.

"The Brands Hatch weekend is going to be massive; it is a track I have missed dearly since the last time I raced in BSB back in 2008. To be honest rolling down Paddock Hill Bend on the HM Plant Honda on Good Friday will be enough to put a smile on my face from the start. I always seem to get lots of local support there and I want to do a good job on Easter Monday for the fans as well as myself and the team. The talking stops at Brands Hatch; it is then all about the racing."
