STP Motorsport's Chris Burns received a boost just prior this weekend's Silverstone British Superbike round with the arrival of a kit gearbox and some new engine mapping information.

Burns' MV Agusta is now getting close to being a full Superbike, which the team wants to run next season, and Burns like the Northamptonshire track, where he took a European Superstock win in 2002.

“I am really looking forward to returning to Silverstone as it is a track that I enjoy racing on and one that I have had success at in the past," said the Newcastle man.


"The fast and flowing nature of the circuit will suit my style of riding and, while we are not on the full circuit, it should be one of the better circuits for me and the MV Agusta. When I was riding in the European Superstock Championship, back in 2002, I qualified on pole and won the race! So my memories of Silverstone are good ones.

"While the circuit used in the BSB Championship is not the full circuit, we will still be using some of the full circuit and I believe we can really challenge some of the bigger teams at this track.  My hopes are certainly high for a good result here.

“Our test last week at Silverstone was very encouraging, getting some good track time and finding a good direction with regards to set up when we return this weekend. Using the new engine maps we have smoothed out power delivery, which should help tyre life. The kit gearbox is a real bonus, being able to adjust ratios for different circuits will be a great help.”
