Shane Byrne sets sights on winning fourth British Superbike Championship
Shane Byrne is thinking only about himself as he bids to
win the British Superbike Championship for a record fourth
Sittingbourne rider Byrne goes head-to-head with fellow
three-time champion Ryuichi Kiyonari when the 2013 season starts at
Brands Hatch on April 7.
It’s set to be a fascinating scrap as the pair fight for title
No.4, while Byrne needs only two more victories to set a new record
for the most race wins.
The 36-year-old (pictured) is looking forward to taking on the
returning Kiyonari but isn’t too worried about the Japanese
He said: “Whether Kiyo’s here or not, I’m here to try and make
myself the most successful BSB rider.
“I missed four races last year which might have put me in a
position to be able to say I’m already the most successful BSB
rider in terms of race wins.
“But it’s great that he’s here for us to be able to fight for
four because nobody’s ever done it before. That’s not to say my
sole focus is on Kiyo."
