Local racer Peter Hickman brought the Lloyds British GBmoto Honda home safely in treacherous conditions in the final round of the British Superbike championship at Brands Hatch.

He added a further five points to his tally, taking his total to 113.

The weather played a significant part in proceedings at the Kent circuit and Hicky was only able to get through to the second stage of qualifying to start race one of three from a sixth row grid position.

As the lights went out, Hicky gradually began his move forward to hold 14th place for the majority of the 18 laps but he was overtaken by Freddy Foret on the penultimate lap and completed the race in 15th place to pick up just one championship point.

Hickman lined up on the sixth row of the grid for the start of race two.

Hickman completed the first lap in 26th position and spent much of the race playing catch up.

He made it up to 15th on lap 12 but encountered a problem and fell back, pulling into the pits to retire with a puncture.

Although the rain had stopped for the final race, the track surface remained wet.

Hickman completed the race in 12th place to pick up four championship points, taking his total to 113 and placing him in 11th place.
