Usually, around about now, we’d be revving up for a full season of road racing. Unfortunately, Covid-19 has other plans, and with the consecutive cancellations of the Isle of Man TT, Ulster Grand Prix and the North West 200, we’re starting to feel a little listless.

Thankfully, YouTube boasts a wealth of footage from screaming superbike races, and this morning we’ve found ourselves down a rabbit hole of hot laps.

Competing in the SuperSport Race, the pair dart around each other at incredibly close proximity, taking on the 7.4-mile Dundrod circuit at blistering speeds. Excellent angles (collated by Greenlight Television) show the sheer edge-of-you-seat racing between the pair – and the rest of the pack for that matter.
