Close to crunch time

With one more race to go before the top six are decided for the title shoot-out, riders around sixth place in the championship will be looking to secure the final two spots. The top six riders after the next round at Cadwell Park will have their points elevated and will go into the pot to fight it out for the British Superbike title. Michael Laverty looks to be safe in fourth spot with Brookes and Kiyonari looking over their shoulders as Rutter, Mason and Kirkham are not too far behind and could potentially take the fifth and sixth places from them.

Shane Byrne and John Hopkins have looked to lead the way all season with Tommy Hill not far behind and it would be a brave man to bet against one of these three men lifting the championship trophy at the end of the season.
