Fan favourite Peter Hickman arrives at round two of the Bennetts British Superbike series feeling confident following the team’s impressive debut with the M1000RR at Oulton Park.
Together they claimed the first podium finish for the all-new model in the championship and Hickman's consistent performance across the three races means he sits third in the overall standings.
“Of course I am looking forward to the weekend at Knockhill, especially as we go into the second round sitting in third place in the championship standings," said Hickman.
“We had a good test there earlier in the year and because it was a two-day test, I did a whole load of laps - we did well over a hundred laps! I feel like we have a good setting to start the weekend with there.
“We do have something new to try there as well which should be interesting, but we will start where we finished the test. At the test, we didn’t have any official times so nobody knows completely where everyone was at, so there is a lot of fun and games when it comes to talking times.
"However, I feel like I was in a really good place on the FHO Racing BMW, as I am more of a racer than a tester. The new M1000RR is awesome, the team are working so hard too and I can’t wait to get started.”
