Tommy Hill is looking to maintain his winning ways as the British Superbike Championship heads to Silverstone for the second of three 'Showdown' rounds.
Hill has hit a strong patch of form in recent races, with a win and a second place finish at Croft giving him an almost perfect start to the much anticipated three-event shootout.
Still, Silverstone represents a different challenge for Hill, particularly as his HM Plant Honda rivals Josh Brookes and Ryuichi Kiyonari have already experienced the revised Arena layout through their World Superbike wild-card outings.
Nonetheless, Hill is feeling confident that he will still be challenging for victories on the Worx Crescent Suzuki.
“It's a circuit that's completely different to most other British tracks,” he said. “Where Croft was typical – bumpy and narrow – Silverstone's actually still bumpy but it's about four times wider and over a mile and half longer! It asks for a whole new skills set both of the rider and the bike.
"I got to ride the circuit for the first time last week, whereas some of my rivals were racing here earlier this season. But the test was all positive. As ever, I'll need to get my head down and be consistent – consistently winning! That's the reality of the job at this end of the season."
Hill currently leads the BSB standings by 16 points from Michael Laverty, while Kiyonari and Brookes are 27 and 28 points adrift respectively.
