Hickman set for a return to Snetterton

Peter Hickman will travel to Norfolk for round five of the MCE British Superbike championship.

The event takes place at Snetterton over the weekend (June 30-July 2).

After racing at Knockhill last week, he said: “Last week was like racing around a car park as I had just got back from the long straights at the Isle of Man TT races and a 37.73-mile track.

“Coming back to short circuit racing was a challenge, but once we got used to it we adjusted well to the short 1.2669 mile track.”

The 30-year-old, who loves near Cadwell Park, recorded two strong top-10 results at Knockhill but will be looking to better that at Snetterton, which has some long straights on the 2.9689-mile circuit, which will suit him far better.

Friday will see two free practice sessions at 10.55 and 3.55pm. Saturday sees the riders have a final free practice 10.40am to get their set-up finalised ahead of the three-stage qualifying which starts at 4.02pm.

Sunday is race day and the riders take in a 15-minute warm-up at 9.30am to make final checks before the two 16-lap races at 1.30pm and 4.30pm.
