Tommy Hill says he will try and race at Croft in an effort to lessen the impact on his British Superbike Championship title hopes, the Swan Yamaha rider insisting he is feeling fit.
Hill was forced to miss the second round of the series at Oulton Park after hurting his shoulder in an accident during warm-up, a meeting he had dominated up to that point.
However, while team manager Shaun Muir had misgivings about whether he would return for Croft, Hill is going as far as targeting the podium.
"I have been on the mend since Oulton Park and doing everything I can to get back racing the Swan Yamaha,” he said. “I have had laser treatment, magnotherapy and visited an oxygen chamber to basically do as much as I can. I have good movement in the shoulder and I have set myself the target of coming back this weekend at Croft as I want to get back on the podium for the Swan Yamaha team as soon as possible.
I have been resting up and I have some more treatment planned before the weekend, so we will have to see what happens. I just need to concentrate on getting out there and scoring as many points as I can for the championship."
