This weekend will see the final races in the 2013 British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch with Lexelle’s sponsored riders looking to end the season on a high.

Tyco Suzuki rider Taylor Mackenzie currently sits in ninth place in the British Supersport class following a strong second half of the season on his GSX-R600.

Taylor is five points ahead of tenth position and 36 points off eighth place, so will be looking to at least consolidate a top-ten finish in his debut season with Tyco Suzuki.

He said: “I’ve really enjoyed my season with Tyco Suzuki riding the team’s GSX-R600.

“I had a good run at Brands last year and with another year’s experience, and on a bike which I feel is more suited to my riding style – I think we can end the season on a positive note and give the guys something to smile about.”

Team Manager Philip Neill added: “Our focus will be on finishing the season off strongly with all three riders on our Tyco Suzuki GSX-R machinery.

“Overall we want to put on a good performance for Suzuki, Tyco and all our associated sponsors and leave our mark on this season’s championship campaign.”

Tarran Mackenzie saw his hopes of winning the Monster Energy Motostar Championship fade away at Silverstone last time out but still has a fight on his hands to secure second spot.

Joe Francis has an unassailable 31 point lead going into the season finale but Joe Irving, in third place, is just eight points behind Tarran.

The Lexelle-sponsored Redline KTM rider, with nine podiums this season, will be looking to add to his three victories and secure second spot.
