HM Plant Honda's Leon Haslam is up for a scrap at this weekend's Oulton Park British Superbikes but knows he has a tough second half of the season ahead of him.

Haslam, who will fly to Suzuka on Monday to take part in the prestigious Eight-Hours endurance race, hasn't enjoyed the best of results so far, but is determined to change things around.

"We want wins now – no question. We know it’s going to be difficult as the Ducati is the package to beat, but we’re not giving up,:" he said.


"Despite the break the team has been busy with the bikes and we hope to have made some improvements for Oulton this weekend. I really want to win this weekend, as it will kick-start the second-half of my season. Oulton is a fantastic circuit and one which I enjoy racing on, so it would be great to start a run of wins from here.”

Team-mate Cal Crutchlow, who is also going to Suzuka but with a different squad, performed well at Oulton in May but suffered a big crash.

"At the first outing there we proved we were fast in wet or dry so whatever the weather we should be up there. With the season now half gone we need to get a double and that’s what we’re aiming for, but if we can’t beat Shakey I want to be the one right behind him. There are no mugs out there, I love racing these guys and there’s no shame in finishing second even if we all want to win," said Crutchlow.
