    Rizla Suzuki's 'Shakey' Byrne was fastest in last week's official Oulton Park test and is going to the fourth round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship at the circuit this Bank Holiday Monday aiming for podium results.

    The 29-year-old Zurich resident won the hearts of the Superbike fans by coming from the back of the grid at the last round and carving his way dramatically through the field to take fifth and eighth. He knows he can improve on those results if he can qualify near the front and is promising to give it his all in front of what is expected to be a bumper holiday crowd.

    Rizla Suzuki's James Haydon has consistently been fast during practice and qualification and is planning on showing that form in both of the races at the picturesque and technical 2.69-mile Cheshire circuit that suits his aggressive riding style.

    Superbike racing starts at 14:00 on Bank Holiday Monday, May 1st at Oulton Park in Cheshire. ITV1 will be showing the racing from 15:30 while the Sky Sports 2 coverage begins at 21:00.

    Team Manager Robert Wicks said: "Oulton Park's fast flowing turns and demands for courage from the competitors match Rizla Suzuki's GSX-R1000 and riders perfectly. It is a spectacular woodland-surrounded circuit which lends itself to dramatic racing and our aim is to be at the sharp end this Bank Holiday Monday."
