Mackenzie hunting for home round celebrations as Donington Park beckons

Tarran Mackenzie maintained his joint position at the top of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship standings after the second round of the season and the McAMS Yamaha rider is relishing the triple-header format this weekend (May 24/25/26).

Mackenzie took a second place and a win at the season opener but had a tougher weekend at Oulton Park last time out, so the 23-year-old contender will be keen to be back in the lead pack this weekend as he bids to claim a place in the Showdown for the first time this season.

Mackenzie said: “I am ready for the weekend! Silverstone was a near perfect weekend to start the season and then Oulton Park was more difficult but we were getting better throughout the weekend, so to leave there and go to Donington still leading the standings was good.

“I definitely want to be back at the front and fighting for wins and podiums again. The last time I raced on the National circuit was in a club race on a 125 in 2010 so I have a feeling a lap on the Superbike will feel a lot different to that! I think this track should make some exciting races and it should suit the Yamaha and we can have a good weekend.

“I can’t wait for the three races; I always find the triple-headers more exciting as you have to be on it from the start of the weekend because the first race always seems to come around faster. Hopefully we can have a good round! ”
