Buildbase Suzuki will be back to full force at Brands Hatch as Danny Kent recovers from injury for round five of BSB.

While the 28-year-old former Moto3 Champion raced at Knockhill last time out, he did so while suffering the aftermath of puncturing and bruising both of his lungs at Donington Park. With the summer break providing ample time to recover fully, Kent completed a test at Mallory Park on the GSX-R before heading to the Hatch in the hope of hitting the ground running as the British Superbike Championship fires up once again.

“I’m ready to go,” Kent said ahead of the trip to the same county. “The chest isn’t causing my any problems so I’m looking forward to getting back to it.

“The test at Mallory was really good, we tried a completely new setting in the bike and I got on really well with it and we set a new lap record, so that’s obviously a positive.

“The plan is to start with that bike in FP1 and go from there. Last year we were quite strong around there so I’m aiming for the same, hopefully an improvement.”
