Splitlath pair hope to impress at Brands

Karl Harris and Hudson Kennaugh hope to impress at Brands Hatch
The Splitlath Motorsport team will hope to impress this weekend when it returns to Brands Hatch for the latest three rounds of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship.

Riders Karl Harris and Hudson Kennaugh are gearing up to tackle the triple-header on their Aprilia RSV4 machines as the series returns to the famous Grand Prix circuit.

Harris, who will once again ride the team's Superbike, is hoping to build on his promising team debut at Oulton Park last month when he crashed out while running in the top ten.

“Yeah, I'm looking forward to getting back out again at Brands Hatch,” he said. “It's been a bit of a nightmare with the three week break because it feels so long ago since the last round. After Oulton I just wanted to get straight back out for another race so it's been a long wait!

“With three races it should be a good one. I want to get out there and do what I can and hopefully I'll be bringing it home in the points.”

In the Mirror.co.uk BSB-Evo Championship, Kennaugh is also looking for three solid results, although he knows it could be a tough weekend.

“I love Brands Hatch and am ready to give it all I've got this weekend because we may struggle on power here,” he said. “We need to give it whatever we can because it won't be easy.

“But I'm looking to the future and hopefully things will pick up towards the end of the season. I'd like to think that in the final races we will start getting on the podium again with an increase in performance which we're due to get any time soon.”

Well based on the diabolical performance of this team so far this season there's got to be a major turnaround to make any sort of positive impression. Be nice to see it but prospects aren't great.....
