Despite going into the second half of the 2008 British Superbike season with a near 100-point lead at Oulton Park this weekend, Airwaves Ducati lead rider Shane Byrne is aware he has remain focussed in order to lift the title.
Byrne, who took a double win at the track here in May, looks to be virtually unstoppable on the 1098R but says there is still a lot of hard work to be done to ensure he can take the BSB Championship trophy back to his Swiss home.
"To have a 97 point lead at the halfway point of the season is a great feeling but all of us at Airwaves Ducati are aware that there’s still a lot of hard work ahead in order to finish the job and win the championship," he said.
"All of the circuits on the British Superbike calendar that I don’t like are now out of the way and the second half of the season kicks off at Oulton Park where I secured my first double win for the Airwaves Ducati team so I’m feeling really confident. However, I know I need to stay focused and just take each race one at a time.”
Team-mate Leon Camier is also looking forward to the weekend, and is confident that some more podiums are coming his way. “I am really looking forward to racing at Oulton Park again. Not only did I secure my first two podium finishes of the season here back in May, but the improvements we’ve made to the settings of the Airwaves Ducati should really help us, particularly in the slower sections. Another two podium finishes would be ideal in helping me to regain second in the championship but of course my goal is to stand on the top step of the podium once again for the Airwaves Ducati team,” he said.
