Rizla Suzuki team-mates John Reynolds and Karl Harris head to the technically demanding Oulton Park circuit in Cheshire this bank holiday Monday, determined to make up for misfortunes suffered at the last round of the British Superbike Championship.

Both riders have now recovered from injuries sustained during the first race at Donington Park last weekend and are raring to get back on the race-track and claim podium glory.

John Reynolds has fond memories of Oulton and can't wait to get his GSX-R1000 Suzuki back into action on the spectacular 2.776-mile track. "I was gutted at having to sit out the second race at Donington and I'm itching to get stuck in," said the reigning British Superbike Champion. "Whilst I always give maximum effort throughout the race weekend, I'm determined to find some extra strength in both rider and machine to get on the front row of the grid on Monday. It'll be a case of no holds barred."

Karl Harris showed great strength of character at the last round, battling through the pain barrier to earn championship points and he, like Reynolds, is eager to get back to racing and show the pack his heels. "I've laid off training this week to allow my body some healing time, but as I am really fit at the moment I seem to just bounce back anyway," said the tenacious youngster. "I took my Suzuki GSX-R600 to a podium finish at both the Oulton rounds last year, so with that under my belt there's no reason that I can't take my GSX-R1000 to the same level."

Team manager Paul Denning added: "We did expect to fare better at Donington Park but back luck intervened. We need to put that unfortunate experience behind us and get on with the job in hand. Both riders are fit for the weekend and all members of the team fired up and determined to settle the score."

The Superbike racing starts at 1.30pm on Bank Holiday Monday 6th May at Oulton Park, near Northwich, Cheshire.
