By Pete Woodhouse

Jake Dixon and the Marham-based RAF Regular & Reserve Kawasaki team battled hard at round nine of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Silverstone over the weekend and an 11th podium of the season sees them now head into the final three-round Showdown, at Oulton Park, Cheshire, this weekend.

After placing third quickest in the final practice session, he duly qualified in second place for the first of the weekend’s three races.

A good start to the 30-lap race saw him complete the opening lap in second and he briefly led but settled for fifth place at the chequered flag.

With the fastest lap of the race though, he started Sunday’s first 30-lap race from pole position but slid off on oil with just two corners to go.
