PBM Kawasaki’s Tom Sykes is a positive man going into this weekend’s Brno World Superbike round in the Czech Republic and says he is looking to get, and remain, in the top five all weekend.

The Huddersfield rider goes into the race weekend on the back of some strong results and a useful test at Motorland Aragon. He aims to be more consistent with his pace, a tactic that served him well at the Spanish track.

?I am very excited and looking forward to racing at Brno. It has a great layout. It is one of the best circuits we go to and I?m very hopeful that the new ZX-10R will work well. I have a strong, positive mindset and on the back of our recent results and latest tests at Aragon, hopefully we can stay nearer the front,” said Sykes.

“I am looking for top five or six all weekend, I would be quite happy with that. The fact is that last time out we were more consistent in our pace and that is my aim again. If anything we can up our game even more in the races, and I am just hoping we can maximize things when using a slightly softer tyre. The plan is to be able to have at least the option of the softer or harder tyres for the races themselves.?
