Cumbrian James Ellison heads to one of his favourite circuits on the British Superbike calendar this weekend, at the 1.2-mile Kent circuit. Ellison was dominant until the races last season, until he crashed in race one and didn’t make the start for race two.
“I’m really excited for this weekend, I was pleasantly surprised at Donington Park because we still had some work to do to make it into a race winning bike. I was happy running at the front, but I didn’t think we had a winning bike as of then, turns out we did. Although we didn’t win the race it proved it wasn’t far away at all, we still have some development work to complete, so we’re only going to keep moving forward.
“I do go well at Brands Hatch Indy, and the only issue with that is expectations are really high, so if we don’t win or set a lap record then people are disappointed. We are heading into this weekend knowing we still have work to do and must focus on making the bike stronger than it was at Donington. We’re under no illusions that it’s going to be easy just because I hold the lap record or that it’s a good circuit for me and the bike is working well at the minute.
“The aim is to win races, my expectations aren’t too high but I’m confident it’s going to be a good weekend. The goal is to win races, that’s always the goal and my main focus. We’ll know a lot more after FP1, but I’m heading there confident and very excited.”
Ellison completed a double win at the circuit back in 2015 on the JG Speedfit GB Moto Kawasaki, whilst also winning two races on the GP layout at the end of the 2016 season. Anvil Hire Tag Racing won on the GP layout once last season, with Josh Brookes in the last race of the season.
