Superbike Sunday Podcast #3 Glenn Irwin Interview

glenn_irwin_podcast

 

He was fighting for the 2020 championship up until the final round in the debut season for the radical new Fireblade, Northern Ireland’s Glenn Irwin was still proud to walk away knowing he could push the pre-season favourites of Brookes and Iddon all the way. Now, as he enters his second Bennetts British Superbike season with Honda Racing, 30-year old Irwin has a new team mate, he’s training hard and there’s a large carrot dangling in front of him

We interrupt Glenn’s winter training schedule that includes a bout on Football Manager (he’s a massive Man Utd. fan) to chat about:

  • Reflecting on 2020
  • Training with his brother
  • Testing at Portimao
  • His new team mate, Ryo Mizuno
  • Ambitions for World Superbike, Suzuka 8 hours and road racing
  • Overcoming the bike’s struggles at Oulton and Brands last year
  • Fireblade upgrades
  • Missing how the fans make him nervous
  • His thoughts on the new qualifying, showdown and triple header format
  • And, the one track he thinks should be included in the Bennetts British Superbike calendar. Out of any in the world.
