MCE British Superbike Championship rookie PJ Jacobsen caught the eye with a superb fourth place at Silverstone.

The Tyco Suzuki rider, who qualified on the front row in third place for the Northern Ireland team, rode a strong race to finish behind Alex Lowes, Shane Byrne and Tommy Bridewell as the 20-year-old's stock continues to rise in his rookie debut in the class.

Jacobsen battled with team-mate Josh Brookes in race two but was unable to make a decisive pass, eventually finishing in sixth behind the experienced Aussie.

"The weekend was really good for me and my GSX-R1000 was working really well from qualifying into the two races today," he said.

"In race one I was up dicing with Bridewell and finished just eight seconds off the winner, and my race pace was pretty good.

"The second race was a bit of a struggle in the beginning but I managed to get in behind 'Brookesy' and we diced it up a little bit.

"The boys at the front got away, but I tried to pass Josh at the last corner on the last lap but he just came back past me on the outside," he added.

"It is what it is and we can take the positives from Silverstone going into the final round now at Brands Hatch."
