HM Plant Honda's Leon Haslam is looking for a fourth win on the bounce at this weekend's Croft BSB round and maybe doing a sly rain-dance to boost his chances.

The Derbyshire man got plenty of wet track time in at Donington's World Superbike round last weekend and pulled off a stunning wet weather win at the Darlington track in 2006 when he charged down a massive gap to Karl Harris to cross the line a tenth in front.

"Last weekend at Donington we had even more wet track time, so we’ve had more than our fair share of wet testing and with the way the season’s gone so far, we know it will also be wet at some point over the weekend at Croft," said Haslam.


"It’s a special circuit for me too as I’ve got some good memories from there, especially from a couple of years ago when I came back from a big deficit to beat my mate Karl Harris to the win. With the last three wins to my name in the championship I’m hoping to at least make it four on the trot this weekend.”
The team had a wet test earlier this year at Croft so have plenty of data with which to work. Reliability problems are still a factor but the team seems to be getting it sorted, with only one breakdown at Donington, which was found to be a fault with Cal Crutchlow's quickshifter sensor.
