Tommy Hill heads to Brands Hatch knowing he can just concentrate on podium finishes after booking his place in the British Superbike 'Title Showdown' three rounds early.

The Swan Yamaha rider returns to his home event having swept the board at the Oulton Park triple-header, a performance that increased his lead in the overall standings to 28 points over Josh Brookes and added nine podium credits to his tally.

Having now acquired the points he needs to progress the first phase of the championship, Hill will now concentrate on notching up more precious podium credits.

"I treat every round the same, but the last time I raced on the Grand Prix circuit was when we won the title so I have some really good memories. I think we have seen from the rounds before how strong the competition is so you cannot rule anybody out.

"Three wins at the last round was good but we still need to stay ahead of the game and we saw last year that one point can make the difference between winning the championship so I will be pushing 110 per cent for wins for myself and Swan Yamaha."
