Danny Kent had the perfect start to his 2024 season campaign.

This weekend, the McAMS Racing by Mar-Train team rode to an impeccable double podium finish at the opening round of the 2024 Bennetts British Superbike Championship. Having constructed an admirable pole position lap during Saturday’s Superpole session, Kent started from the front of the grid.

Demonstrating a strong race pace from start to finish, he secured the third spot on the podium and gifted the squad their first top-three finish in the championship. The final race of the weekend saw Kent set off from second on the grid. Having made an exceptional start from the line, he soon fought his way through to the front, maintaining a commanding lead for several laps before dropping back into second.   Maintaining second place for the remainder of the race, Kent went on to clench a second podium of the weekend, ending Round One in high spirits.

With Round two of the 2024 Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Oulton Park lying just around the corner, Kent and the team sit joint second in the standings with 30 points in total and just six away from the top.   The R1-powered squad are back out on track at Oulton Park for an additional stint of testing on the 1-2 of May, ahead of the Bank Holiday race weekend held from the 4-6 May.

“I feel over the moon to have started the year off with two podium finishes. The team and I worked really hard throughout testing in the week, so it’s nice to see it all come together during a race weekend. The bike didn’t feel 100% in the first race, but we made some changes ahead of Race 2 which resolved the issue we were having. As always, a big thanks to the team, they did a mega job this weekend and it was great to reward them with their first podium in the championship. Now it’s full focus towards Round 2 at Oulton Park in a couple of weeks.”

“Well, that’s the first round of the season over. It was a dream come true for the team to get our first-ever podium finish in the British Superbike Championship. To come away from the first race weekend of the year with two trophies means the world. The team have worked really hard, so it’s nice to see it all come together when it matters. I’d like to give a huge thanks to all of our incredible sponsors who are supporting us this year. It’s been a great first round, but we’re nowhere near finished yet. Let’s hope we can take that momentum forward to Oulton Park.”
