Samsung Honda's Alex Lowes is determined to take the fight to his title rivals as the MCE British Superbike Championship returns to Oulton Park for a triple-header this weekend.

Lowes stood on the top step on his last visit to the Cheshire circuit earlier in the season and is targeting further wins as he attempts to reduce the deficit at the top of the standings to Shane 'Shakey' Byrne.

The Lincolnshire rider, who claimed his first victory of 2013 at Oulton, finished on the rostrum twice at Brands Hatch last time out and is now 21 points and seven podium credits behind series pacesetter Byrne.

"After the break we have had I can't wait to get to Oulton Park, especially with three races," he said.

"The tracks that are coming up are better ones for me than some of the others earlier in the season like Knockhill and we want to come back next weekend and take it to 'Shakey' and Josh [Brookes] like we did there earlier in the season.

"We had our first win at Oulton Park earlier in the year so that is a good place to start but we know we need to be faster and keep improving as that is what everyone else will be doing ahead of the Showdown," added Lowes.

"I definitely would like to get to Oulton Park and push again for wins; I want to keep improving myself and the Samsung Honda and try and score some more podium credits."
