Silverstone BSB: Work to do for Iddon, 'bike's not mine yet'

Christian Iddon makes his Buildbase Suzuki debut this Easter weekend as 2022’s Bennetts British Superbike season begins.

While Iddon his new team still have work to do to get him comfortable on the GSX-R1000R, the 37-year-old acknowledges that racing is different to testing and is eager to get the new challenge up and running. Silverstone’s national layout kicks off proceedings, a track the Suzuki ran a strong top-six at last time out, with the Stockport rider keen for more on his maiden outing.

“I’m looking forward to getting into a race scenario,” Iddon said ahead of the season opener.


"We’ve still got work to do; the bike doesn’t quite feel like mine yet, but racing is different to testing. You’re still trying when you’re testing, but I just feel more comfortable in a race situation.

“We’d have liked a bit more of a preseason but we’re where we probably expected to be. On one hand it’s good that Silverstone is round one because we know the bike goes well here, so it can help us have a good weekend even if the bike isn’t quite where we want it to be, but on the other it’d be nice to be coming here once we’re fully dialled in.

“The forecast looks a lot better than it was for the test, so hopefully we can have productive practice sessions and three good races.”
