It was the Perfect Start to Proceedings for the All-New LKR Racing Team at Silverstone.

It was an extremely positive weekend for the LKR Racing team with Danny Kent running on a Honda in the Bennetts British Superbike class and Kieran Kent running a Yamaha in the Junior Superstock class, for the opening round which took place at Silverstone Circuit.

Danny Kent made fantastic progress over the weekend at Silverstone using practice and qualifying to find the perfect set-up for the three races.

The LKR Team worked hard all weekend giving him a bike that was able to secure some strong results and also top Honda in two of the three races.

Danny rode well and secured 9th in race one, 8th in race two and a brilliant 5th in the final race of the weekend. In race three he was able to lead for several laps and was locked in the mix for the entire 30-laps. It was a great end to a successful weekend and a positive start to the season for the newly established Lovell Kent Racing team.

I’m very happy with how round one at Silverstone turned out for myself and the LKR team, we worked well all weekend. Any problems I had on the bike were resolved quickly, races one and two we were just missing a little grip which we managed to sort for race three.
The team gave me a bike for race three that allowed me to fight at the front and lead my first BSB race, I’m happy with the results, the plan is to grow from there and try and make improvements at each event. Thank you to everyone involved.

Junior Superstock

Kieran also had a great weekend despite the overall race result not showing this. He made huge steps all weekend and continued to improve on his times throughout the weekend in every session. He qualified in 22nd place and was eager for a good race. However, a small technical problem from early in the race hindered his progress and he was only able to bring the Yamaha home in 33rd position. He made a good start and was working through the field but from half distance had a problem with the bike.

The weekend was up and down for me but I’ve taken many positives from it and learning from the negatives. It is all part of the learning process which I am enjoying. I’d like to thank all the LKR team for their hard work. Onto Oulton Park now in a few weeks’ time and we will try again. I can’t wait!

Allen Lovell – Team Owner

As a team owner, I’m extremely excited following our first-round results. Our team has worked hard over the winter to have a positive start and competitive bike. Danny has shown with his technicians we can be one of the front runners. We know it’s a long season and will take one round at a time. See you all at Oulton Park.
