Byrne untouchable in the Scottish sunshine... no joke!

We all collectively released a huge sigh of relief when the chequered flag came down on the second, re-started, MCE British Superbike Championship race of the weekend; aside from a dreadful bout of weather from late Friday evening to midday on Saturday, the weather was actually rather kind to us – 2.5 days of glorious sunshine isn’t too bad considering it ‘always rains at Knockhill’.

Shane 'Shakey' Byrne continued his winning momentum in the opening MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship race at Knockhill as the defending champion held off fierce opposition with the top four riders covered by 0.952s. Stuart Easton had taken the initial lead on the opening lap as he bid for success at his home round, but Byrne was instantly on the attack and took the lead at the Hairpin for the first time. On the opening lap Filip Backlund had crashed out and with debris on the track the Nissan GT-R Safety Car was deployed and the pack bunched up behind ready for a restart three laps later.

Home success for Michael Robertson

Danderhall’s Michael Robertson claimed a welcome home-podium in the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship race by finishing in 2nd place behind eventual race winner, and Championship leader, Josh Elliot.

However, Hobbs couldn’t hold on for the win as Rob Guiver slipped passed at the Hairpin. Hobbs will be content with adding further Championship points in his attempt to retain his Ducati Tri-Options Cup title he won last year.
