Tommy Hill says he will continue to push for wins in the three races at Cadwell Park even though he has safely qualified for the upcoming British Superbike title showdown.
The Swan Yamaha rider successfully booked his place in the shootout last time out at Brands Hatch and though he is currently classified third in the points' standings behind Shane Byrne and John Hopkins, he has amassed greater podium credits.
Even so, Hill won't rest on his laurels at Cadwell Park in the quest to add to his credits and improve his chances when the shootout gets underway at Donington Park in September.
“Cadwell Park should be another good round for us and after winning the third race at Brands Hatch I can't wait to get back out on the Swan Yamaha. Everyone can see how hard we are all pushing now and we all have a mutual respect for each other on the track, but at the same time we have a job to do and that is to win the championship. I know that some of the other riders have been out testing there, but that doesn't faze me and I want to go out and enjoy those three races now we are in the Showdown.
“I am two races down on potential podium credits because we missed Oulton Park earlier in the season, so I want to score as many as possible this weekend to put us in the best possible place going into the big Showdown.
“Both myself and Michael will be going all out to win and we can also use this round to make some changes that could benefit us in the Showdown. I will then approach the final races differently to last year; just taking it one race at a time.”
Hill, who is guaranteed to start the first Cadwell Park race - the rescheduled Oulton Park round that was cancelled - from pole position, qualified for the BSB title shootout in 2010 when he rode for Worx Crescent Suzuki.
