Round six of the British Superbike Championship saw the riders return to Oulton Park where the Forcefield riders put in a solid display over the weekend with just one test of the Forcefield Body Armour.

Keith Farmer riding on the PBM Kawasaki took on a big challenge by riding in both the British Superbike class as well as the National Superstock 1000 class. He went on to finish on the podium in the Superstock 1000 race securing a strong third position and is still leading the Championship.

He did however decide to test out the Forcefield Body Armour on the Superbike when he crashed at one of the fastest parts of the circuit, Island bend.
Keith Farmer - "I seem to like to have very fast crashes at Oulton Park as that is where I had my huge crash in May. Island was another fast crash and I went down fairly hard but luckily was able to just walk away just a little bit winded. It was a busy weekend with riding the Superbike and the Superstock bike but a great experience."

Meanwhile in the Metzeler Superstock 600 Championship race Seton Tuning Yamaha’s Ben Burke extended his lead with a hard-fought third. The 23-year old Australian benefitted from a couple of unforced rider errors in the closing stages to secure the final step on the podium.

The third Forcefield rider to secure a podium finish was Ben Wilson of Gearlink Kawasaki racing in the in the British Supersport class where he managed second place in the first race a very good 4th in the second race.

The next BSB race will take place over the weekend of 21st-22nd July at the Brands Hatch GP circuit where Forcefield favourite Dan Linfoot is expected to return after the hand injury he received at Knockhill.
