2 Podiums and 1 Win for Forcefield riders

The British Superbike Championship went to the fantastic Snetterton 300 track this weekend and the riders were treated to their first fully dry weekend of the season. With temperatures reaching 27 degrees and a massive crowd it was the ideal racing weekend. The Forcefield rider got to test out their under garments in the hot conditions and all were very pleased that they kept their body temperature down in the scorching conditions.

Forcefield wearer Ben Burke took his second consecutive win of the season in the Metzeler National Superstock 600 class on board the Seton Yamaha. He was pushed all the way over the 12-lap race but got the better of Jimmy Rose out of the final turn across the start finish straight.

With the conditions being so good it lessened the crashes thankfully so luckily not many of the Forcefield Body Armoured riders had to test the products this weekend. Bradley Hughes in the 125 class was one of the few who unfortunately crashed out.

Bradley Hughes - "I had a huge high-side during qualifying at the Brundles corner and it smashed my helmet and bashed me around. Thankfully my Forcefield Body Armour protected me and I suffered no spinal or chest injuries, it did a great job and allowed me to compete in the race where I managed to finish in the points in 15th place. I'd like to thank to everyone at Forcefield for providing such great protection."

British Superbike rider Dan Linfoot also had a big crash during Superpole on Saturday.

Dan Linfoot - "I had a pretty big high-side during qualifying on Saturday onto the Start/Finish straight. I walked away with no injuries to my chest or back and the Forcefield gear did a great job and it gives me confidence that it will protect me in the future."
