Danny Kent’s start to the 2021 Bennetts British Superbike campaign has been a difficult one to say the least. 

Kent suffered a technical issue in race one at Knockhill, before crashing out of race two - something that’s becoming an early trend this season, while a 14th in race three salvaged two points. 

This comes off the back of another double DNF in the opening round where the 27-year-old suffered two crashes.

Consistency has been the main issue for the 2015 Moto3 world champion through the opening six races - therefore making him ‘rush things which slows you down’. 

However, like Buildbase Suzuki team-mate Gino Rea, Kent showed improved pace compared to Oulton Park, especially over one lap. 

Speaking after the weekend, Kent added: "It wasn’t the weekend I was hoping for, though not through a lack of trying. 

"My pace for one or a few laps wasn’t so bad but my consistency wasn’t great and at a short track like Knockhill every tenth is important. 

"I feel my biggest problem, currently, is trying to rush things which then slows you down, especially on a superbike. 

"I can’t fault the team, they’re doing a great job to help me, and what is important is that we can be fast and do good lap times, we just need to do them consistently."
