Samsung Honda Aims To Continue Winning Ways At Oulton Park Triple-Header
11 Aug 13
|Samsung Honda heads to Oulton Park this weekend for a triple-header that could see the team book its place in the British Superbike Championship Showdown. The team’s riders have historically reaped good results at the Cheshire circuit, with both Alex Lowes and Ryuichi Kiyonari securing podiums and race wins there in the past – Lowes as recently as round three of this year’s championship.
Just 21 points adrift of championship leader Shane Byrne and following another double podium at the last round at Brands Hatch, Lowes is ready to repeat his winning performance. The Lincolnshire lad has a mathematical chance of securing his position in the Showdown this weekend, with two rounds still remaining for riders to claim their spot in the title fight.
Kiyonari returns to the UK following his recent appearance in the Suzuka Eight Hour race in Japan. His focus is now fully back on BSB as he aims to challenge for the podium and maintain his position inside the top six.
In the Motorpoint British Supersport Championship, Jason O’Halloran is aiming to improve on the fourth place finish he secured at the first Oulton Park round in May. The team has been edging ever closer to its first Supersport podium finish of 2013 and is hoping to break into the top three this weekend.
