Moving up into Bennett’s British Super Bikes, rider Luke Hopkins, details what issued were faced in the few weeks before round #1!
With roughly 2 weeks to prepare the bike, Luke explains the rush that ensued to get the Honda ready! With HM Owner Gareth preparing the Loom & ECU, a fuel tank also had to be constructed to gain extra fuel capacity in this short time.
Despite all this rushing, Luke has made it and raced around the likes of Silverstone, Snetterton, Oulton Park, Donington Park, Knockhill, Thruxton, and of course, Brand Hatch. During which, Luke has been chasing, closing the gap & even overtaking the factory Honda racers, despite their edge of factory backing and more powerful engines.
Being the first season in BSB for Luke, he says
“it was always going to be a challenge” but “we’ll get there before the end of the season”.
