East Antrim’s British Superbike riders head to Thruxton this weekend - one of the fastest tracks on the calendar - for round six of the series.

Carrick racers Alastair Seeley and Glenn Irwin will be chasing as many points as they can in the Supersport class. With just 10 points between Seeley and leader Billy McConnell going into the meeting, the ‘Wee Wizard’ will be hoping to leave the circuit as the front-runner in the series.

Jordantown’s Andy Reid, who races in the 600 superstock class, will be aiming to consolidate his championship lead, while Andrew Irwin will be looking to climb a higher step on the podium after his third place at Brands Hatch.
