NEAVE CROWNED THE 2021 PIRELLI NATIONAL SUPERSTOCK CHAMPION!

22/10/2021

Huge congratulations to Tom Neave and the Honda Racing UK team for being crowned the 2021 Pirelli National Superstock Champions with the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP.

 

 

With a consistent point-scoring season, Tom racked up three wins, two second places and two third places this season. Going into the final round of the 2021 Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch, Tom was 22-points ahead of his championship rival Billy McConnell, but having qualified 19th there was some work to do for the Honda-rider. Tom kept pushing up through the pack where he eventually took the chequered flag in eighth place, and as the 2021 Pirelli National Superstock Champion.

Meanwhile in the British Superbike Championship, Glenn Irwin took a ninth place finish in both the first and second race, but retired early from Race 3 following an engine issue. Plagued with a shoulder injury throughout the latter part of the year, Glenn finishes the season eighth overall having scored a win, two-second places and a third throughout the season.

For Glenn’s teammates and BSB rookies Ryo Mizuno and Takumi Takahashi, the British championship has been an exciting, but a steep learning curve with new circuits to learn each time out. Finishing Sunday’s races in the points Takumi took a brace of 15th places, with Ryo finishing 20th in both.

Congratulations to Team Manager Havier Beltran and the whole Honda Racing UK team for a great 2021 season. They will now look forward to the 2022 season, where the team will be announcing its plans very soon.
