Danny Kent returns to the scene of his maiden British Superbike podium this weekend as Buildbase Suzuki arrives at Thruxton.

After a top ten result at Brands Hatch last time out the former Moto3 champion is looking to build on his strength and performance at the Hampshire venue.

“I’m excited to get started this weekend,” Kent said ahead of round six. “I obviously had my strongest weekend here last year and taking my first BSB podium was a big moment, and it’s a track that I really enjoy.

“After the injury at Donington this year we made some good steps forward at Brands and had our strongest weekend of the year so far, and I think we can make another step this weekend.

“With Thruxton though there’s always the issue of tyre life, and in over 30°C temperatures this weekend it’s going to be really hard on tyres, so we’ll need to work on making them last. But I’m looking forward to getting started.”
