BSB: Iddon hopes to regain ground at Thruxton

1 of 1

Christian Iddon will be hoping he can return to the form that saw him take four consecutive podiums at the start of the season as the MCE British Superbike Championship heads to Thruxton this weekend. 

The Tyco BMW rider has been off the pace over the last few rounds but a breakthrough in the second race at Snetterton leaves him with hope as the series reaches its halfway point.


Despite the lacklustre results in recent rounds, Iddon remains in the all-important showdown top six and is keen to work to cement that this weekend as he looks to challenge the title leading duo of Shane Byrne and Leon Haslam.  

“Thruxton is one of the rounds I really look forward to the most, simply because it is so different to any of the other tracks we race on during the season,” he said. “The nature of the track generates really close racing and I love that. My finger is feeling much better after the operation, so I am looking forward to this weekend now it is on the mend. At Snetterton I felt strong in race two and I think that we could have made up some more places if it hadn’t been for the red flag, but that’s the way it goes sometimes. It is definitely onwards and upwards for Thruxton."
