Farmer back for Oulton Park as Buildbase Suzuki set for triple attack

Keith Farmer will make his return to the Bennetts British Superbike Championship this weekend (September 18/19/20) at Oulton Park with the Buildbase Suzuki team, following his recovery from a shoulder injury sustained at the opening event of the season at Donington Park.

Farmer was sidelined before the opening race of the year following a crash, which left him with a ligament injury to his shoulder, which subsequently involved surgery to the ligaments. However, following a positive test at Donington Park today (Tuesday), he will join Kyle Ryde and Gino Rea in the team this weekend.

Farmer said: “It felt really good to be back on a Superbike today and I have to thank Steve and the Buildbase Suzuki team. We got some good laps in and it felt better than I expected to be honest – it must have been the adrenaline of being back on track!

“I have been having laser treatment and physio since the operation on the ligaments and I have been out on the motocross bike too. It is unbelievable what can be achieved now and I have to thank everyone involved in my treatment.

“I know it will be a tough weekend at Oulton Park with very little down time with qualifying and three races, but my goal is to get some races under my belt because it feels like such a long time since that last happened! I just want to have a consistent weekend and then step up at each of the last events.”
