Brands Hatch BSB: Byrne: This victory's for my team

'I made a good start and realised the importance of the win so a big thanks to the team, that victory's for them' - Shane Byrne
Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki rider Shane 'Shakey' Byrne admitted he was feeling 'much better' after the triple MCE British Superbike champion took a win in race two at Brands Hatch after crashing out of the first.

Byrne went down at Hawthorn as he challenged eventual winner Josh Brookes for the lead in the opener, but the 36-year-old made amends with a typically commanding success in the second to earn his 49th BSB victory.

His Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki team had to rebuild his ZX-10R after the bike sustained £15,000 worth of damage in the incident, but Byrne delivered the goods in style.

“I feel much better now than what I did after the first race, that's for sure,” said Byrne.

“I had a plan for the first race and it was all coming to fruition but no sooner had I got the lead from Josh Brookes than I was down.

“The team worked really hard in between races to get the bike ready and to bounce back with a win is brilliant.

“I made a good start and realised the importance of the win so a big thanks to the team, that victory's for them.”

Byrne now leads the championship by 21 points from Samsung Honda's Alex Lowes, with Josh Brookes a further point behind in third.
