Tarran Mackenzie is targeting a return to action at the second round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Oulton Park this weekend after a broken ankle sustained in a crash during the final pre-season test ruled him out of the season opener at Silverstone.
The 2021 champion will be required to undergo an assessment by the BSB medical team ahead of the event, and pending their approval, he is targeting the opening free practice session to make his comeback.
Mackenzie said: “My ankle felt quite a bit better just a few days after I had the cast off, I’ve got a bit more movement than we had expected. I’ve been seeing my physio every day and have been undergoing some light training too.
“Oulton is a physically demanding track, but if I’m passed fit, I will go out in practice and see how I’m feeling from there.”
