Kent racer revvs up for the weekend

Brands Hatch race circuit in Kent is once again roaring to the sound of superbikes this weekend. Almost 40 riders took part in practice sessions this morning including Sittingbourne's Shane "Shakey" Byrne. He's currently 12 points clear after just one race so far. That's despite a crash in which he broke his hand in pre-season testing.

David Johns went along to see how things are shaping up, speaking to Shane Byrne and race series director Stuart Higgs.
