Superbike aces riding for the RAF regular and reserve team gear up for home round at Snetterton
Racing aces riding for the RAF regular and reserve team are gearing up for this weekend when they will be competing in the home round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship.
Thousands of people will be watching Marham-based Alastair Seeley and team newcomer Jake Dixon as they battle it out at the championships in Snetterton, starting today.
Mr Dixon joined the team at the last round at Knockhill in Scotland.
The team was established in 2012 by Lee Hardy, who raced for four seasons himself, and works at RAF Marham.
Mr Hardy, team principal, said: 'I haven't had amazing results at Snetterton. As a rider I was always quite unlucky there, so I am hoping to turn that round this year. If we can come away with a couple of top 10s, that would be fantastic.'
