Filip Backlund is eager to add to his points-scoring tally at Assen this weekend (19/20/21 September) at the tenth round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship with the FFX Yamaha team.Swedish contender Backlund made his debut at Donington Park and scored a point on his first appearance with the team and is eager to build on his first performance this weekend at the legendary Dutch circuit.

Backlund said: “Assen as a track is lovely. I have been and raced at Assen before and I like the whole track so I'm really looking forward to it. My first weekend at Donington Park with the FFX Yamaha team was great and there was a lot to take in. I have spent time since the last round thinking about ideas from Donington Park and how to improve because it's a big difference compared to the Superstock class. “This weekend I will be more relaxed and be able to put more of my energy into riding. I want to get the best results possible. I now it's a hard task and some of the riders in the field are some of the world’s best. I just need to find all the pieces and put them together”.
