Jon Kirkham back in business at Snetterton after Oulton crash

'The boys have been working flat out back at the team HQ in Louth ready for the Snetterton round and looking at what we can improve so we are all set' - Jon Kirkham
Samsung Honda's Jon Kirkham intends to bounce back stronger than ever at Snetterton this weekend following his huge crash at Oulton Park.

Kirkham was sidelined after a 150mph spill in the opening race at the Cheshire venue at Water Tower while he was lying in fourth place.

Luckily, he escaped with concussion, but Kirkham left Oulton empty-handed and after recovering from the fall in time for this weekend's meeting at Snetterton, the Honda rider is out to make amends.

“It has been a good start to the season for us and at Oulton Park we were making good progress, well apart from lap nine of race one,” he said.

“We were pushing hard and to be honest we were not doing bad; it looked like it would be a good race for us. That came to an abrupt end and it was gutting for me to have missed the three races as that has dropped us down the order in the standings.

“The boys have been working flat out back at the team HQ in Louth ready for the Snetterton round and looking at what we can improve so we are all set for the weekend,” added Kirkham on the official British Superbike website.

“Snetterton should be good for us and I went well there last year; I qualified third and got a sixth place.

“This year with Samsung Honda hopefully we can get a good set up and claw some points back to get inside the top six in the standings.”
