Peter Hickman travels down to Kent for round six of the MCE British Superbike championship at Brands Hatch this weekend.

Hicky, who rides the RAF Reserves BMW, is currently 12th in the standings and will be seeking two good results to boost his points tally and elevate himself into the top 10.

The Louth rider was left frustrated after qualifying left him with a poor grid position at Knockhill. He knows the importance of getting fast laps under his belt at Brands to secure a good grid position and allow him to get away with the front runners in the first of the two races.

On Friday there are two free practice sessions at 10.15am and 3.20pm followed by a third on Saturday at 10.20am.

The three-stage qualifying session is on track at 4.05pm to determine the grid for the first race on Sunday which begins at 1.30pm.

The times set in this race will determine the grid positions for the second 20-lap affair which goes off at 4.30pm.
