Triple champion Shane 'Shakey' Byrne set a blistering pace at this week's Donington Park test, lapping under the lap record, and the Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki rider will be aiming to carry that momentum to Snetterton.

Tyco Suzuki's John Hopkins returns to Snetterton ahead of his assault on the MCE BSB crown and the American will be keen to replicate the pace that saw him victorious on his debut at the circuit in 2011.

Jakub Smrz and the Millsport Ducati team have got their campaign off to a positive start and the Czech rider will be bidding to hold a position inside the top five again in Norfolk, but Lloyds British GBmoto Racing Kawasaki's Chris Walker and James Ellison are also keen to end their testing campaign on a high at Snetterton.

Meanwhile Kings Lynn-based RAF Reserves Honda are set for their debut in the Superbike class this season and Simon Andrews will be ready to use the final test to get their season off to a flying start at Brands Hatch. 31 riders have been confirmed to line up at the Kent circuit over Easter weekend.
