The British Superbike Championship headed North at the weekend to the Scottish circuit Knockhill. The weather conditions were mixed with a combination of wet and dry which tested out the skill of the Forcefield riders.
Forcefield wearer Ben Burke took his third win on the trot at the small Scottish track in the National Superstock 600 Championship, however this was not without drama after he suffered a big high side on Friday during practice. In the same Championship Forcefield user Johnny Blackshaw took his first podium of the season and finished in 3rd place.
Irish star Keith Farmer finally shook off the demons of his huge crash at Oulton Park in May and took his third win of the season in the Superstock 1000 class he is now leading the Championship as they head to Oulton Park in a couple of weeks' time.
A couple of the Forcefield riders tested the kit out once again at the weekend, Dan Linfoot crashed out heavily, he sustained no injuries to his chest or back but did suffer some hand damage which he is having an operation on, Forcefield would like to wish him a speedy recovery.
Ben Burke - "I had a fantastic weekend at Knockhill and managed to secure the win but did have to test out the Forcefield kits on Friday after a big high side, it did it's job perfectly and I walked away without a scratch on me. Thanks again to all at Forcefield for their support."
Supersport rider Sam Warren had a huge high side in race two.
Sam Warren - "That was a massive crash I'm feeling pretty second hand and suffered some injuries to my knee, wrist and a very sore backside. The Forcefield certainly did its job as I landed flat on my back at high speed, no injuries to my back or chest which I'm very grateful about."
