MCE BSB champion Byrne hunting home success at Brands Hatch

Thursday, April 16 2015

Shane 'Shakey' Byrne leads the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship standings ahead of Brands Hatch this weekend (17/18/19 April) and the defending champion won't be giving an inch at his home round.

Byrne admits he is still 'rusty' following his pre-season testing crash, but the Sittingbourne contender started his title defence at Donington Park by securing a win and a second place for the season opener and still wants more.

Byrne said: "It doesn't seem like five minutes ago I was thinking about if I could even ride at the Donington Park test the week before the first round after my injury, so the first round exceeded any expectations I did have. To come away with a second place and a win, knowing that I can only get better and stronger as my injury improves, means I am quietly confident of achieving more of the same at Brands Hatch.

"I am not going to lie, I am still really rusty and because of that I was making rookie mistakes in the races at Donington, but I know that it is going to be even closer on the Indy circuit, so we will be doing everything possible to try and have a repeat performance - if not one better this weekend!"

The 2015 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship returns to Brands Hatch this weekend (17/18/19 April) for round two. Tickets are available on the gate for £10 on Friday, £14 on Saturday and £32 on Sunday, with free entry for under-13s. For more information please click here.
