Norfolk's teams and riders head to Brands Hatch this weekend for the British Superbike Championship.
In the Superbike class RAF Regular and Reserves Team from RAF Marham will be hoping their rider Jake Dixon can keep his current form up. He has had two wins at Knockhill and recently at the ultra fast Snetterton circuit a sixth and a fourth against some of the best superbike riders in the world.
In the Superstock 1000 class Bowthorpe's Morello Racing's Danny Buchan heads into this round with a very healthy championship lead of 45 points over his nearest rival Richard Cooper. This time there are three races with a total of 50 points up for grabs.
Buchan's team-mate Fraser Rogers will be hoping his recent bad luck has gone as he also aims for the podium.
Saturday is a 100 mile race, split into two legs and half points for each leg. Sunday is a straight race and it would take a brave man to bet against Buchan winning all three races.
Thetford's Ryan Vickers will be out to make up for the disappointment of missing out on a podium at Snetterton two weeks ago when he crashed out on the last lap of the Superstock 600 while third. Despite this being his first year in BSB he knows he can mix it at the front, also in this class is Norwich's Grant Newstead who finished in the points at Snetterton and will be hoping to do the same again.
