DEAN Harrison is targeting one final points finish, as he prepares for the last round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch this weekend.

The Bradford speedster will have a summer away from the showpiece tracks of the United Kingdom but he wants to go out with a bang.

He said: "I love going to Brands Hatch; it always delivers and it's a very nice track to go to, and the atmosphere is always good there. It's been a long season but one I've enjoyed. To go out with a points finish would be a great ending for myself and it would be one that I'd be happy with.

"It's all about showing progression in this sport, so that will certainly be my aim."

Superbikes haven't always been Harrison's forte but after the closing of another campaign on the 'big bikes', the Bradford racer has had to time to reflect on the season's races.

Speaking to the T&A, he said: "First of all, it's been nice to have everything back to normal after the past couple of years we've had with Covid. Everything around the events are flowing as they should be and it's been nice to have full crowds back.

"On the racing side of things, the British Superbike Championship is the most competitive competition of its kind in the world. There are so many individuals fighting it out at the top and it was always going to be about getting experience for me and I think I'm getting that now. I'm seeing more progression in my times and standings, so I'm clearly adapting to the competition more and more.

"I don't think you are ever content with the progress you make; there is always room for improvement. So, there are certainly aspects of my performances that I'll take into next season, but I will certainly looking to build on what I've done so far."

Harrison added: "I'll continue to ride over the summer, but I'll be able to spend more time with my family and friends, which will be nice."
