Knockhill BSB: Byrne on top as Scottish action gets underway

Published: 27 June 2014

Shane Byrne has resumed his usual spot at the top of the time sheets as the MCE British Superbike Championship got under way north of Hadrian’s Wall, leading the second free practice session on day one at Knockhill.

However, he was forced to work hard for the top spot, dipping under the lap record – partially thanks to a new profile hairpin – to beat fellow triple champion Ryuichi Kiyonari by a quarter of a session. The Japanese rider followed on from leading FP1 to stay top for most of the second session as well, completing 42 laps in the process.

Josh Brookes was third, rounding out the front row on the Milwaukee Yamaha, while row two was led by local hero Stuart Easton, finally finding promising form on the second Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki late in the day to demote back Tommy Bridewell and John Hopkins.
