Ryuichi Kiyonari says he will accept nothing less than victory at Donington Park as he bids to put himself in the best possible position for the 2014 BSB Title Showdown.

A three-time BSB champion and the winner of the first 'Title Showdown' format in 2010, Kiyonari's switch to Buildbase BMW has yielded some of his most convincing form in some time, with four victories so far this season comfortably pushing him into the top six shootout.

However, a double DNF last time out at Cadwell Park has put him on the back foot in terms of pre-Showdown podium credits compared with main rivals Shane Byrne and Josh Brookes, a matter he is keen to rectify this weekend.

"I now look at Donington Park as a second home round - mine was Cadwell Park and now this weekend it is the team's local circuit.
