Peter Hickman travels to Kent this weekend for the seventh round of the MCE British Superbike championship that takes place at Brands Hatch on Sunday.

Hickman, who lives near Cadwell Park, will be hunting down two strong results with the JG Speedfit Kawasaki to edge him nearer to the top six who go forward into the shootout for the championship crown.

His results from Thruxton saw him drop a place down to 10th, but two top results could soon alter that as he is only 13 points away from a shootout position.

The first free practice is on Friday at 10.15am followed by a second at 3.20pm. Free practice three is on Saturday morning at 10.20am, prior to the three stage qualifying session at 3.05pm.

If Hicky can get through to the final stage, he will go out on track on his own for a one lap charge, the fastest rider starting the first race from pole position.

There is a short warm up on Sunday morning at 9.35am to make final preparations for the first of two 20 lap races at 1.30pm. The fastest lap of race one will determine grid positions for race two which is due to get underway at 4.30pm.
