Global Robots BMW rider Peter Hickman has put a tough opening Bennetts British Superbike round behind him and is hoping the stopping issues that caused his crew nightmares have been fixed for Snetterton this weekend.

Despite two uncharacteristic crashes and issues getting his BMW S1000RR stopped, Hickman was still able to get some points on the board and goes to the Norfolk track with ‘changes made’.

“I’m excited to get back out on the BMW this weekend and as a team we’re looking to hit the re-set button after a pretty tough opening round,” said Hickman.

“Snetterton has always been a bit of a mixed circuit but I had a pretty strong weekend last year and we’ve made a few changes since Donington to hopefully help solve some of the issues we had.

“The shortened season does make things a little different this year, but we’re not approaching this weekend any differently and we’ll be treating it in the same way we do every round.

“Snetterton is a definitely a high-speed circuit, but there’s also plenty of heavy braking areas and flowing corners which gives it a bit of everything.

“Although fans won’t be at the circuit again this weekend, it was great to see so many staying up to date through social media at Donington so we’ll be looking to put on a great show for everyone back at home this weekend too.”
