Lee Jackson’s win at Oulton Park has placed him in contention for his first Bennetts British Superbike Championship title and the Cheshire Mouldings FS-3 Kawasaki rider is ready to try to maintain the momentum.

Jackson starts the penultimate round holding third place in the standings and 48-points adrift of Bradley Ray at the top, but knows that another strong weekend at Donington Park will close the deficit ahead of the season finale at Brands Hatch.

“Going to Donington, it’s somewhere I enjoy racing. Last year, I got third there in a wet race and a fifth on the Sunday morning and a bit of a struggle in the damp. I want to try and keep that similar form, if I can keep fighting at the front, that’s where I want to be now,” said the Lincolnshire plumber.

“I’m in the fight for the title so we need to keep pressuring Brad and do the most we can, so we can go to Brands Hatch with the least amount of points off the championship lead as possible.”
