The Rock Oil supported 2015 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship arrives at Thruxton this weekend for the fastest round of the year.
We're looking forward to a return to form for the Rock riders this weekend. In the main event for RAF Reserves BMW Rock Oil supported rider Peter Hickman will be pushing for a place on the podium. Gearlink Kawasaki, Morello Racing and Motodex BMW are sure to be going flat out to build on their standings in the support classes.
Thruxton hosts legendary high speed corners and has a reputation as a rider's circuit. Originally a wartime airfield, Thruxton hosted both the RAF and USAF and played a major part in the D-Day landings. Converted into a race track in 1968 with three new track corners, it boasts one of the longest track lengths in the UK at 2.4 miles per lap.
The JG Speedfit round begins on Friday 31st July with free practice sessions for the different classes, with qualifying races on the Saturday. The main raceday begins with warm up rounds, with races going through the day covering a wide range of motorbike racing. Including the KTM British Junior Cup, British Sidecars, Pirelli National Superstock 600 and 1000, British Motostar Championship and British Supersport Championship.
