BSB: Dixon: 'I've just got to keep doing what I've been doing!'

Published: 26 September 2018

Jake Dixon and the RAF Regular and Reserves Kawasaki team will be looking to improve the speed of their Kawasaki ZX-10RR to keep themselves in the title fight at Assen this weekend.

After Silverstone, Dixon expressed concerns that his ZX-10RR was slightly down on power compared to some of his rivals including series leader Leon Haslam.

However, the young gun powered to a stunning double victory at Oulton Park last time out to take a chunk of points away from Haslam in the title fight.

But with power far more important at Assen than Oulton, Dixon has said the team have been looking at how they can improve to remain in the title hunt.

“Our bike hasn’t been as fast as some of our rivals and I do think that might be an issue this weekend, but we’ll be doing everything we can to overcome that,” Dixon told MCN.

“The bike is in a better place than it was last year so I’m confident it will be good as soon as we roll out and then we’ll do what we do every weekend and give it 100%.

“Leon has got all the pressure on him; the championship is his to lose. I’ve just got to keep doing what I’m doing, enjoying riding my bike and if we do that the results will come and hopefully that will be enough to keep us in the hunt.”
