Following his success at the Ulster GP, Louth racer Peter Hickman returns to his local circuit of Cadwell Park for round eight of the British Superbike championship this weekend.

Hot on the heels of securing his first international road race win in Northern Ireland, Hicky took in a test day at Cadwell last week to prepare the RAF Reserves BMW for the assault on the popular Lincolnshire course.

He will be hoping he can replicate his result from last year when he took his maiden victory in the British Superbike class.

The weekend begins on Friday with two free practice sessions at 10.20am and 3pm.

The final free practice session is on Saturday at 10.15am to make final preparations ahead of the three-stage qualifying session at 4.05pm which sets the grid for the first of two 18-lap races.

Sunday is race day and Hickman is out on track at 9.10am for a short warm-up session ahead of the first race which is scheduled to start at 1pm. The second encounter is set for a 4.30pm start.

Saturday qualifying and both races will be televised live on Eurosport 2.
