It'll Be Heaven With Seven
So who remembers the headline writers coming up with the "War for Four" title back in 2013 when 3 time Champion Ryuichi Kiyonari arrived back into British Superbikes to challenge the then current 3 time Champion Shane Byrne for a 4th BSB Title ?
As it turned out neither took the title, that honour went to Alex Lowes. So the "War for Four" headline appeared yet again in 2014. However this time Shane Byrne was successful and took his 4th Championship title. Kiyonari had trailed by 12 points going into the final round of the season at Brands Hatch but crashed during a free practice session and fractured his collarbone, thus ending his challenge for the Title.
Being an avid fan of "Shakey" I decided to coin my own phrases thereafter with "Strive for Five" and then for last season I came up with "In the Mix for Six" both first mentioned on Social media by me.
That said, I doubt anyone will remember or give me credit for this, so this year I've decided I should post my new phrase, "It'll Be Heaven with Seven" on my blog today for the 6 time BSB Champion and so dated the day before the 1st round of BSB starts at Donington Park.
Remember, you heard it here first folks !!
