Having missed the opportunity to race at Knockhill in 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions, Ryan Vickers made the most of his first British Superbike appearance at the Scottish circuit last weekend with three top ten results. 

Vickers was regularly inside the top ten whether that be free practice, qualifying or the races, which was a step forward from Oulton Park three weeks ago. 

After suffering from tyre trouble in round one, Vickers was without such issues last weekend which allowed him to be consistent until the end of each race. 

Vickers’ best result came in race two where he got the better of Bradley Ray, Peter Hickman and Lee Jackson for sixth. 

Vickers was again embroiled in a battle with Jackson during the final race of the weekend - which he came out on top of, however, the RAF Regular & Reserves Kawasaki man was unable to better Hickman this time and eventually finished ninth. 

"It’s been a good weekend and I’m really happy with how it’s gone and the results I’ve achieved," added Vickers.  

"It was my first time here on a Superbike but the work we’ve done so far this season paid dividends and we had the consistency we wanted. 

"We didn’t have the tyre trouble we had at Oulton and my lap times were strong all the way until the end of each race. 

"It’s not the easiest track on a Superbike but my times were as quick as anyone’s and had it not been for a couple of average starts, the results could have been even better. 

"We learnt a lot with the bike again and to be only four seconds away from the race winner shows the progress we’re making. 

"We’re making improvements and strides forward all the time and three top ten finishes is what we want at this stage of the season so the aim is to keep the momentum going at the next round."
