Excitement building as TAG Racing Honda head to Snetterton
The former airfield circuit saw the all-new Fireblade take the Championship by the horns in 2020, with Glenn Irwin and Tom Neave achieving great success taking victory in both the Superbike and Superstock classes, something that has given the team added motivation ahead of the weekend.
Linfoot, who currently sits 17th in the Bennetts BSB standings, heads into the weekend aiming to continue the strong results he’s achieved at the 2.9-mile circuit in the recent past. The Yorkshireman has been somewhat frustrated with his performances this season, but is fully focussed on gaining his best result of the campaign for him and the team this weekend.
Winfield heads to Norfolk full of confidence after a strong showing at Cadwell Park, which saw him run in the top 10 for most of the weekend, but a frustrating raceday has left him wanting more this weekend. Snetterton is one of Shaun’s favourite tracks on the calendar and he’s also fully focussed of achieving his best results of the season in Sunday’s encounter.
“We need to continue to be strong in practice and then we need to carry that into qualifying and the races. It’s important to qualify well at Snetterton and get away with the front group, because you can quickly get lost mid pack. It’s fair to say we haven’t shown our true potential this season but hopefully with how the Fireblade suits Snetterton we can get back to where we belong.”
“I know that Snetterton suits the Fireblade well, Glenn and Tom proved that with their victories last year, so that fills me with confidence. I’m looking to continue the good feeling I have, getting a good points score is on my radar and if we perform like we did at Cadwell then I can’t see any reason why we can’t achieve that.”
“We want to see a good performance from Dan this weekend, as a team we’re in this together and we’re getting better with the Fireblade but there definitely is more to come from both him and the bike.
“Shaun is confident ahead of the weekend and it’s great to see how excited he is, his performance at Cadwell was excellent and proved he suits the package and hopefully we can see a repeat performance at Snetterton.”
