Rizla Suzuki riders John Reynolds and Karl Harris head to Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire this weekend with high hopes of building on progress made during recent tests.

The tricky 2.17-mile Mountain Circuit is popular with the riders and the Bank Holiday Monday meeting is expected to draw the usual large crowd, enthused by the prospect of another thrilling and action-packed championship race meeting.

A host of developments made to the four-cylinder machines to enhance the obvious speed and competitiveness of the Suzuki GSX-R1000, have proved to work well.

The team is optimistic that the changes will work to its advantage as the series approaches the latter stages of the championship.

"As always I'll be giving it my best shot and will be pushing the bike to its limit to get a win," said John Reynolds the defending British Superbike Champion. "This can be a difficult track as it's really narrow and pretty bumpy in places, but there a number of sections that are good for overtaking and there'll be nobody out there trying harder than me."

Karl Harris returned to the British race scene at Thruxton earlier this month, after a four round lay-off, and is eager to get back out on the track.

"I was happy enough to get a top six placing at the last round after three months of convalescing. I now want to get on the podium and am hopeful that, with a bit of brute force, I'll do that at Cadwell," noted Harris.

Team Manager Paul Denning concluded: "Last time out at Thruxton, we showed yet again that we have the potential to win. Although the result then was disappointing, the team is very focused on this weekend. Karl is fitter for his Thruxton experience, and John is as keen as ever to challenge for the top step of the podium."
