Top two ready to lock horns at Knockhill

'We are in a good position and I am focused on having fun and getting some good results' - Alex Lowes
MCE British Superbike Championship top two Alex Lowes and Shane Byrne are preparing to lock horns this weekend at Knockhill in Scotland.

Samsung Honda rider Lowes is aiming to maintain his slender one-point lead at the top of the series table after claiming a victory in round three at Oulton Park.

Lowes is the only rider to have finished on the rostrum in each race so far and is keen to maintain that momentum this weekend, where the young Lincolnshire man is bidding to win for the first time at Knockhill.

“I can't wait to race the Samsung Honda again. It has been nice to have the break and I am ready to come back strong at Knockhill,” he said.

“The team have been working hard and we want to try and keep scoring podiums consistently as that is what we will need when it comes to the Showdown.

“We are in a good position and I am focused on having fun and getting some good results.”

Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki rider Byrne has been victorious at Knockhill in the past but the defending BSB champion is anticipating a tough weekend at the 1.27-mile Scottish circuit.

“Knockhill I am sure will produce some good battles and we will be trying to get some more wins for the Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki team as we want to be back on the top of the podium,” said Byrne.

Fresh from his Isle of Man TT debut, Tyco Suzuki's Josh Brookes is another strong contender for the podium places along with Milwaukee Yamaha's James Ellison, the pair currently occupying third and fourth in the championship standings.

I hope to see Alex really fulfilling his potential the last two years have seen him mature and become what i feel is the future of British racing. His brother is setting WSS alight and the two are also tremendous with the fans and will always take time to sign an item or chat and have a good time. they are really the future and i think we Brits need to get behind them in both classes and in a few years time i hope to be shouting from the roof tops when they with Crutchlow are battling with the Spaniards in MOTO GP come on Britain get behind them
