RAF Reserves Kawasaki flying high ahead of home MCE BSB round

Thursday, June 29 2017

Norfolk-based MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship team RAF Reserves Kawasaki heads to their home round at Snetterton this weekend (30 June - 2 July) on the back of their best weekend so far this season at Knockhill.

Jake Dixon claimed a debut victory in MCE BSB for the team at the Scottish track, before following it up in superb style to make it the team's first winning double. The 21-year-old became the fourth different race winner of the season so far and after a whirlwind build up to the team's home round this weekend he is keen to get started.

Dixon said: "To be honest the raceday at Knockhill still seems like such a blur because we had race one and my head was still in the game for race two; even after that I had a five hour drive home so it wasn't until the Monday really when it all started to sink in and realise the achievement!

"We need to work hard again throughout free practice and qualifying to come out fighting in the races, because it was such an amazing feeling that I just want to do it again - especially in front of all the team sponsors and guests at our home round."

The double win at Knockhill leapt Dixon up the standings into eighth place overall and within striking distance of the top six - the place where all the riders want to be before the final three-round Showdown that will decide the title in the autumn.

"The top six has got closer now," added Dixon. "We need to close that again and keep consistent because we have to keep our feet on the floor and not get carried away. I say that, but can you imagine if I could make it a double, double win? That would be a dream come true especially after all the hard work everyone has put in."
