Harris happy with BSB return

"The bike is very good; I know I can go faster, which is my aim over the next few rounds" - Karl Harris.
Karl Harris finished in the points during both races of his MCE British Superbike Championship return at Brands Hatch on Sunday.

In his first outing or the Quattro Plant Kawasaki team, 'Bomber' claimed 13-12 finishes and "started to enjoy it" but needs to work on his race fitness.

“It's great being back in the paddock and scoring points in both races,” said Harris. “The team are very professional, but they operate a nice relaxed atmosphere, which takes a lot of pressure off you as a rider.”

“It has been a very tiring weekend, as I am not race fit, but the second race was much better than the first and I started to enjoy it,” he added.

“The bike is very good; I know I can go faster, which is my aim over the next few rounds. I will be back in the gym next week and will be out testing next week to help build up my fitness. “

Harris, a former triple British Supersport champion, hasn't had a full time BSB ride since 2009.

Just to let all you "idiots" know that karl crashed in testing at brands due to an oil spill and has more talent in his little finger than all of you armchair fans put together... Also karls 1st year at HM plant was a better one than kiyo's 1st year, harris beat more than half the grid in both races after almost a year off from short circuit racing, what does that say for the riders that finished behind him??.... You dont win british motocross, european superstock, and british supersport 3 TIMES by not being awesome....
