Cadwell Park: The Title Fighter decider

Friday, August 13 2010

Just two races at Cadwell Park on August Bank Holiday weekend (28/29/30) stand between the main contenders and the Showdown, where the top six will battle it out to become the 2010 MCE Insurance British Superbike champion.

However, whilst the leading five riders in the overall standings have already secured their place as one of the Title Fighters, the coveted final place is still yet to be claimed - and its destiny will be decided in Lincolnshire.

Ryuichi Kiyonari and HM Plant Honda lead the overall standings ahead of their home round, with the Japanese former double champion also the top scorer when it comes to Podium Credits to date. Tommy Hill and Josh Brookes are currently separated by just one podium credit, so both riders will both be looking for strong podium finishes as they head into the final three rounds of the championship.

The final sixth place is still up for the taking following the Brands Hatch round as Alastair Seeley, John Laverty and Stuart Easton all have a chance to become the final Title Fighter. Relentless Suzuki's Seeley took a maiden BSB race win at Brands Hatch and looked set to secure the final place, before crashes in the final two races left the fight wide open.

Cadwell Park earlier this season was one of John Laverty's strongest rounds of the year, so the Buildbase Kawasaki rider will be eager to repeat that if he has a chance to stealing the position in the final stages from Seeley. Swan Honda's Stuart Easton also has a mathematical chance of leaping into the final place, but he will need to haul himself back into podium contention if he is to have a chance of making it through.
