Tommy Hill insists he is not going to the final round of the 2010 British Superbike Championship looking to defend his advantage over his rivals, but will instead go on the attack.
Hill had his lead in the standings reduced to 11 points last time out at Silverstone ensuring the title battle would go down to the wire over three races at Oulton Park.
While all six title shootout riders are still mathematically in with a shot of the title, Hill will be paying most attention to Josh Brookes, Ryuichi Kiyonari and Michael Laverty, all of which he out-scored on the last visit to the Cheshire circuit.
"I am not going into these races looking to defend my position,” the Worx Crescent Suzuki rider said. “I've got an 11-point advantage – and I bet the other riders wish they had that – but I've seen it in championships before, attack really is the best form of defence, so I am going out there to win all three races and get the job done.
“I've said it already, I really like Oulton Park and I'm delighted this is the stage for the final Showdown. And I'm not just saying that, I've proven it with my two podiums here earlier this year – and back in 2009 I came away from this same meeting with a second, third and fourth. This is my playground.
“I've every confidence in the bike, in the team and my own capabilities. I've been training hard and I'll be racing hard. I can really only have the one objective: to be the 2010 British Superbike champion.”
