Peter Hickman will be looking to pick up further points as he travels down to Kent for round six of the MCE British Superbike championship at Brands Hatch over the weekend.

Hicky, who rides the RAF Reserves BMW, is currently 12th in the rider standings and will be seeking a couple of good results to elevate himself up into the top 10.

The Willoughby rider was left frustrated after qualifying left him with a poor grid position at Knockhill, which affected his race results, and he realises the need to get some fast laps under his belt at Brands.

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

The three-stage qualifying session will be on track at 4.05pm, which will determine the grid for the first race that takes place on Sunday.

There is a 15-minute warm up on Sunday morning at 9.35am, ahead of the first 20-lap race at 1.30pm.

The times set in this race will determine the grid positions for the second 20-lap affair, which is set for a start at 4.30pm.
