    The Airwaves Ducati team return to racing this weekend travelling to the Knockhill Racing Circuit in Scotland for round 8 of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship.

    At 1.2986 miles long, Knockhill is one of the shortest circuits on the championship calendar, but with its dips, peaks, twists and turns it is renowned for being one of the more physically demanding.

    After a successful test at Croft last week the Airwaves Ducati team are confident heading to the Fife circuit. Riders Gregorio Lavilla and Leon Haslam are looking to secure more championship points and extend their leads at the top of the riders and manufacturers standings.

    After a three week break in the championship calendar, Haslam is eager to get back to racing. "The Airwaves Ducati's should be well suited to Knockhill and after the test at Croft last week I'm feeling confident that I can do well this weekend and hopefully challenge for a win. If Snetterton was an indicator of how the season is going to progress then this weekend is certainly going to be exciting. I am really looking forward to it".

    Gregorio Lavilla commented, "Last year was my first ever visit to Knockhill and I came away with a podium so obviously I am hoping for more this time around. I had a disappointing weekend at Snetterton but the test at Croft helped us to try out some new race settings and I'm feeling very confident for the second half of the season."

    Round 8 of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Knockhill commences on Sunday 16th July.
