ANDOVER’S Jake Archer will be hoping for success on the track as the British Superbike Championship heads to Donnington Park this weekend.

Archer will be competing in the British GP2 (Moto2) category with two races over the weekend.

On Saturday there is a 20 lap race, followed by the 24 lap feature race on Sunday.

Since winning the Moto3 title last year, Archer has been making steady progress after deciding to move up to the Moto2 class for 2019.

He goes into this weekend in fifth place in the standings after four races.

He said: “I’m looking forward to getting back on the Moto2 at Donington.

“This season is all about learning to change my style to ride the Moto2 machine and we should see results progressing as the year goes on.”

The Kovara Projects by RS Racing rider will be hoping to improve on his efforts last time around at Oulton Park where he finished seventh.

He then went on to follow that up with a sixth place in a shortened feature race after a red flag incident brought the event to an early finish.

During the weekend of racing at Donnington, Archer will have to tackle the 1.957 mile (3.149 km) National Circuit.

This track follows the main Grand Prix circuit through Redgate, the Old Hairpin and Coppice before a quick right then left at Roberts and onto the start finish straight, rather than heading down to the Foggy Esses and the Melbourne Hairpin.

Archer added: “It will be interesting to race on the National Circuit as we usually use the full GP circuit, but I am sure we can adapt pretty quickly.”
