After the long trek to Knockhill, in Scotland, Jason O’Halloran travels the shorter distance to Snetterton for round five of the MCE British Superbike championship this weekend.
The Market Rasen-based Australian rider recorded his first win in the championship at the Norfolk circuit last year, while his Honda Racing team-mate Dan Linfoot was a very close second.
He topped the time sheets in the official BSB test last month on the Honda Racing Fireblade and is hopeful of a repeat performance this time.
Free practice takes place on Friday at 10.55am and 3.55pm, and on Saturday at 10.40am ahead of the three-stage qualifying which starts at 4.02pm.
Sunday is race day and the riders take in a 15-minute warm up at 9.30am for final checks before the two 16-lap races at 1.30pm and 4.30pm.
