Buildbase Suzuki’s Christian Iddon hits Knockhill inside the showdown fight and on the hunt for his first British Superbike podium of 2022.

The fourth round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship takes place at the quirky 1.3 mile Scottish circuit, a track Iddon won at last season - albeit on very different machinery.

While the Stockport rider has a best of sixth to his name so far in 2022, the progress made with his Suzuki steed has been steadily building, and it’s momentum he’s hoping to maintain this time out.

“We’ve had a solid start to the season and we’ve made progress every time we’ve been out,” Iddon confirmed. “I’m enjoying riding the bike, we just need to find that last little bit to get with the front group.

“We’ve improved my feeling with the bike and I feel like I know it a lot better now and understand it a lot more. So hopefully we can keep on this upward trajectory and start to fight for the podium.

“Knockhill should be good; I won there last year, and as it’s a short lap you can work through a few things in practice and make changes as you go. If we can start strongly we should be able to have a good weekend. I’m looking forward to it.”
