Crutchlow confident from third.

Cal Crutchlow is quietly confident of completing his time at HM Plant Honda with a 'win or two' in the final Bennetts British Superbike round at Brands Hatch.

Crutchlow qualified in third position behind Shane Byrne and team-mate Leon Haslam to guarantee himself a spot in the middle of the front row.

However, despite being disappointed to miss out on a third consecutive pole position, Crutchlow believes he can challenge for victory before he embarks on a switch to the World Supersport Championship next season.

“I'm a little disappointed with third, but we're on the front-row and I know I've got the race pace around here to win a race or two and that's what I'm going all-out to do in my last appearance in the UK for HM Plant Honda.

"We've worked hard on set-up and I'm confident we have the right package to do the business on in both 30-lap races tomorrow.”
