British Superbike star Luke Mossey is looking to build on his opening weekend success when he races at the Brands Hatch Indy.
Luke had a fantastic start to his season earlier this month by finishing second and fifth respectively on the opening weekend, and this positioned the Royston-born rider second on the championship leaderboard.
He said: “Our opening weekend was perfect and it feels great to have got the first race of the season out of the way.
“We did everything right from the start and got the set-up of the bike perfect, which showed as we were on the pace throughout.”
With the next race of the season taking place this weekend at Luke’s local circuit, he’ll be hoping to make the most of his knowledge of the track.

Luke’s team, JG Speedfit Kawasaki, had a fine start to the BSB season by securing a one-two in the championship, with his teammate, Leon Haslam, taking top spot.
“The team was really pleased with our performances and being first and second on the championship standings,” said Luke.
“It was Leon’s local track and he rode well.”
Concentration for the 24-year-old is now firmly set on Brands Hatch Indy, with his aim to continue on from where he left off.
Luke began racing at the age of just six and by 2006 was racing 125cc bikes and winning British and European titles.
He joined the British Superbike Championship in 2015 racing for Quattro Plant Kawasaki.
In his debut season he won the Rider’s Cup Trophy and in the 2016 season he reached the Showdown and came sixth overall.
At the end of the season he joined the JG Speedfit Kawasaki team for the 2017 competition.
