Farmer celebrates maiden podium success

Keith Farmer helps turn his season around with a maiden British Superbike Championship podium finish at Brands Hatch for PR Kawasaki.
Keith Farmer is hoping his maiden British Superbike Championship podium won't be his last after breaking his duck at Brands Hatch.

The former National Superstock 1000 champion made his BSB debut with the title-winning Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki team, scoring a best finish of fourth place in his maiden campaign.

A switch to the privateer PR Racing team over the winter has seen Farmer produce some encouraging speed, though his best result of the year coming into the BSB weekend was just 14th. and after a DNF in race one, he only started race two in 21st.

Despite this, tricky wet-to-dry conditions saw Farmer make impressive gains through the field, following eventual race winner Josh Waters and battling with Richard Cooper to post an impressive third place finish, much to his delight.

“After a frustrating weekend with no rear grip, it feels great to have my first podium in BSB. After a poor qualifying session and a retirement in race one, we decided to change the swing arm for race two, which cured the issue.

“After the last few rounds a P3 finish is a great pick me up and I am looking forward to be back out at Thruxton.” On the weather conditions he added. “I like racing in the wet, but the conditions in race 2 were wet and dry.

“I settled into the race and saw Josh making a few moves and he stayed on so I thought we could have a go too." He concluded. ” I am happy as it is my first podium and hopefully we can have a few more this season."
