Glenn Irwin aims to get back on track at Snetterton this weekend

Glenn Irwin aims to get his and the Hager PBM Ducati team’s title bid back on course as they head for Snetterton and round five of the 2024 Bennetts British Superbike Championship this weekend.
Due to a number of factors, the 34 year old from Northern Ireland was unable to add to his four victories so far this season at the Scottish track last month, so the plan is to get back to the early season form which saw him so dominant on Jordan and Frank Bird’s machine.
Irwin is just 11 points adrift of former teammate and rival Tommy Bridewell who now leads the series but is confident ahead of the weekend, especially as it’s a track where the Ducati excels at and which saw him on the podium last year, narrowly missing out on a victory.
Glenn won at the Norfolk track back in 2020 so is looking forward to the weekend and hopefully getting some more victories under his belt as the title race heads towards the busy mid-season.
Glenn Irwin: “When you’ve had a difficult round, it’s always good to turn up at the next track fully motivated and keen to put things right. The conditions at Knockhill were some of the toughest I’ve ever raced in but I felt good and it was disappointing that the results didn’t quite go our way. But we are taking the positives out of that weekend and the plan is to start winning races again this weekend at Snetterton. We have gained a lot of information over the first few rounds and we are always working on areas where we can improve. There are a lot of things different from last year but we know what we need to do and there is a great mindset and belief in the team.”
Jordan Bird, Team Owner: “Snetterton is always a round we look forward to and we had a wonderful meeting there last season with three victories. It’s going to be a bit of a surreal and emotional weekend in some ways as the Snetterton round last year was the last one my dad attended before he passed away. We hope we can return to winning ways and get our championship challenge back on track after a frustrating weekend at Knockhill last time out.”
