Honda Racing’s Dan Linfoot, Jenny Tinmouth and Jason O’Halloran are preparing for the fifth round of the 2015 British Superbike championship, which takes place at Knockhill Racing Circuit this weekend (3-5 July) in Scotland.
O’Halloran will be hoping to repeat his success at the last round at Snetterton, which saw the Australian take his CBR1000RR Fireblade to two third place finishes – scoring his debut podium placings in the national series. Team-mate Linfoot, who is sitting eighth in the overall championship standings, is hoping to make further progress at the 2.045km Scottish circuit and move his way up to challenge with the leading group.
The only female competitor in the championship, Tinmouth knows that further steps are required in order to make her way up the placings, and after posting encouraging lap times at the previous round the 36-year-old is confident for the weekend ahead.

I’m really looking forward to this weekend and building on the results from the last round at Snetterton. Hopefully we’ll have a good weekend and I can bring back some more points towards the championship. Knockhill is a great circuit and I always really enjoy racing there, it’s a shame we only go once during the season as I always have a lot of fun there. It’s intense with a great layout and I’m looking forward to getting out on Friday for practice.
It’s been a busy few weeks since Snetterton, I’ve tested with the Honda Racing Endurance squad and went to Goodwood, but it’s nice to be back racing this weekend. The last round was obviously a great result for us with two third place finishes and it would be great to repeat this at the weekend! I’m in a good place on the CBR at the moment, we have a good setting and I’m feeling good riding it. Knockhill is a fun circuit to ride; it’s short and fast so it’s important we qualify well. It’s always tight racing there with a good crowd and I can’t wait to get going.
I can’t wait to get back out on the Fireblade this weekend. Snetterton was a positive round for me, we made progress and I am feeling confident on the bike. This weekend I’m hoping to build on my lap times from the last round. I love riding at Knockhill it’s like a rollercoaster! It’s up and down and very fast, but all flows together and is great to ride.
