Danny Buchan and Brayden Elliott leave Knockhill with a brighter outlook for their 2024 season

Knockhill as expected, delivered some challenging weather conditions for all involved, with drier conditions definitely have been preferred across the board for Round 4 of the Bennett’s British Superbike Chmapionship at the Scottish circuit. However, despite the Scottish weather attempting to put a dampner on the proceedings, both Buchan and Elliott leave the weekend with their best results so far this season and feeling positive their bike set up is finally starting to feel like home.

Race Results

Danny Buchan #83: P11, p13, p7

Brayden Elliott #51: DNF, P19, P16

Danny Buchan, Superbike Rider #83:

‘My weekend went really good, we’re leaving this weekend on a real positive with the steps forward we’ve made as a team. The team have delivered a great bike, really getting it feeling more comfortable underneath me, we’re leaving here now with just small changes to be made to improve. So yes, I’m really happy with where we’ve ended up with a highest positioning so far this season in the final race finshing P7. At the start of the weekend I was really enjoying the bike in the dry weather and then lacked a bit of confidence in the wet, which the bike didn’t initially feel great in, so to end at 7th in the mixed conditions makes me feel even more positive and looking forward to building from this strong base and taking this through into the rest of the year.’

Brayden Elliott, Superbike Ride #51:

‘Overall I’m leaving on a positive note. The final race of the weekend was definitely the best I’ve felt in the rain for the whole event, considering we got a whole lot of wet riding. So yeah, P16 is another improvement for me, of course I still want more but it’s good to end of such a positive note.’

Jonny Bagnall, Team Manager:

‘For Danny this weekend has definitely been a positive step in the right direction, although I don’t think the results reflect the work the team has put in to get to Knockhill. Not to sound negative, but yes it is a step in the right direction. Like many, I think we would’ve benefited with a little more dry track time to get a clearer picture on changes made. Overall it was a good weekend for Danny.

Brayden of course it is his learning year, so we aren’t expecting too much out of him. Again, he has liked the direction we have gone in with regards to changes made, but for him it’s time learning the superbike. In himself he wants to look at improving his approach to his weekends, relax a little more, as he puts a lot of pressure on himself. But, as a team we surround him, keep him positive and keep pushing him forward. He finished inside the top 20 this weekend, which is a good result for him and the conditions haven’t been ideal all weekend, so hats off to him for getting the results he did.’
