Britain’s biggest motorsport series rolls into Cadwell Park, near Louth, this Bank Holiday weekend.

MCE BSB is the UK’s most popular motor racing championship and the upcoming round at Cadwell Park will attract tens of thousands of fans from across the country, drawn to the fantastic views on offer and the festival atmosphere.

The hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds form many natural spectating areas at Cadwell Park and the famed Mountain section, where the 200bhp Superbikes can become completely airborne, is just one of many great places to watch the racing.

Japanese superstar Ryuichi Kiyonari, who lives in Louth, is currently the form man in the 2014 MCE BSB championship.

The Buildbase BMW rider has won four of the last nine races, and has moved up to third in the points table behind Australian Josh Brookes in second and current leader Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne.

Like Byrne, Kiyonari is a former three-time MCE BSB champion, and the pair are embroiled in a thrilling ‘War for Four’ titles this season.

Kiyonari said: “I really like Cadwell Park because, since I’ve lived in the UK, it’s been my home circuit and so I always want to have a good result there. “My confidence is really high.

“We have worked hard and we have shown we can be fast at every round.

“We want to be winning but if you stop pushing for one moment then someone like Shakey, Josh or another rider will beat you.

“We need to stay ahead because we have closed the gap in the championship but we still need more podiums.”

The weekend features nine support races in addition to the two headlining MCE BSB contests on Monday. There’s live music from great bands during the evening on Saturday and Sunday, plus a charity cycle race on Sunday evening, a funfair and a playground for younger race fans to enjoy.
