Oulton BSB: 'M1000RR is working well' - Hickman

FHO BMW's Peter Hickman goes into this weekend's Bennetts British Superbike season opener in confident mood after putting in business-end laptimes during pre-season tests.

The Isle of Man TT lap record holder finished less than three-tenths off the pace at a recent Oulton Park outing and says the M1000RR is moving in the right direction.

“Testing has been really good for myself and the FHO Racing BMW team, the new M 1000 RR is working well already and I am really happy with it," said the Louth rider.


"We were at the sharp end during testing which was nice, and I know it is only testing, but the signs are very positive.

“I am looking forward to Oulton Park; we tested there a few weeks ago and we were strong – I finished fourth and was only 0.2 off the fastest time so I am looking forward to getting racing, especially in front of some fans. I know it will be limited which is a shame, but hopefully we will see everyone back soon to enjoy the racing.”

The action kicks off on Friday so check back for all the news, gossip, times and results from the season opener.
