Shakey aiming high at Cadwell Park

Thursday, August 22 2013

Shane 'Shakey' Byrne missed the Cadwell Park round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship last season due to a shoulder injury but this year is determined to bounce back and push for the six potential podium credits from the two races on Bank Holiday Monday.

Byrne celebrated his 50th MCE BSB race win last time out at Oulton Park and the defending champion is aiming for success at the home round of his team's sponsor Rapid Solicitors. 'Shakey' has his position in the Showdown confirmed alongside Josh Brookes and Alex Lowes but wants to bag more podium credits this Bank Holiday weekend.

Byrne said: "We will go to Cadwell Park and Donington to score the best results we possibly can and our aim will be the same as always; two wins!"

Byrne missed the two races in Lincolnshire last season when he crashed during second free practice, injuring his shoulder, but the Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki rider believes that they will be ready to come out fighting this weekend.

"With so much experience of Cadwell Park last year I can't wait to get back there and hopefully be on winning pace," joked Byrne. "Last season we were not sure how the Kawasaki would be there but we were fastest in free practice and then the weekend ended with the crash and the shoulder injury. I think if you look at the times from last year though the race pace wasn't that different to what we had set in the first session so that was good.

"I would like to think we will be cool this weekend, some of the other teams have a bit of a head start where they have tested recently but the Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki team have been working hard back at base and I have been flat out so we will be ready and on the case that's for sure!"

Tickets are now available to purchase on the gate at Cadwell Park. Adult tickets cost £10 on practice day (Saturday), £13 on qualifying day (Sunday) and £31 on raceday (Monday).  Children under 13 go free! For more information call 0843 453 9000 or click  here.
