This weekend (18/19/20 September) the Bennetts British Superbike Championship reaches the second half of the 2020 season at Oulton Park, where Honda Racing top the championship standings with Glenn Irwin, as well as the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship with Tom Neave - both aboard the new CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP. 
 
With a 35-point lead ahead of the weekend’s triple-header, the team arrives at the picturesque Cheshire circuit with a clear focus of securing solid finishes across the three races in order to maintain the series lead. 
 
Just shy of a podium finish last time out at Silverstone, Glenn’s trio of fourth place finishes were enough to edge further ahead of his title rivals. Teammate Andrew Irwin will also be looking for a series of strong finishes as he aims to improve his position in the standings where he’s currently sitting eighth with 83 points. 
 
On the Superstock side of the garage Tom currently heads up the championship with a six-point lead, having won three out of the five races this season with the new Fireblade, but in a hugely competitive field this weekend’s two races will prove vital for his championship. Davey Todd is looking forward to continuing his short circuit return and build on his season, where he continues to run with the front runners. 
 
Practice begins on Friday 18 September with qualifying and Round 10 on Saturday, ahead of Rounds 11 and 12 on Sunday.
 
Live timing will be available here.
