Silverstone will host the next crucial stage of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship on 8-10 September when the six Title Fighters will be decided in an intense triple-header race weekend.

For the first time in the history of the championship, there is not a single rider confirmed in the Showdown title fight ahead of the top six decider, so the battle to be in contention to push for British championship honours will come down to the three races at Silverstone. There have been seven different race winners and a further five different podium finishers so far this season, so it really will be a battle of the titans!

As well as the exciting track action, there will also be lots of off-track entertainment for adults and children including looping bikes, freestyle shows and much more. If that wasn’t enough, there’s free paddock access all weekend and a FREE pit walk on Sunday so you can get up close to your favourite teams and riders!

If you haven’t already witnessed the atmosphere first hand, the explosive acceleration off the line or the riders rubbing elbows at incredible speeds – then you really should!

Championship Standings

Leading the standings into Silverstone is defending champion Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne. The Be Wiser Ducati rider holds a narrow ten point advantage over arch rival Leon Haslam and the record-breaking champion will be pushing for a victorious return to Silverstone, as will his JG Speedfit Kawasaki opponent.

Peter Hickman has soared up the standings in recent rounds and the Smiths Racing BMW rider heads to Silverstone and will be bidding to repeat his victory from 2016 as he bids to make the cut for the Showdown for the first time.

Just adrift of Hickman is Australian contender Jason O’Halloran; the Honda Racing rider is gunning for his first win of the season onboard the all-new Fireblade, but his fellow countryman Josh Brookes is only eleven points behind as he bids to add to his 2015 title crown.

Luke Mossey holds the final place in the top six ahead of Silverstone as he aims to return from injury for JG Speedfit Kawasaki. Mossey trails Brookes by six points, but closing rapidly is RAF Reserves Kawasaki’s Jake Dixon and he is only five points off in seventh place with Tyco BMW’s Christian Iddon also pushing for a Showdown position.

The final rider with a shot at the Showdown six is James Ellison as he heads to Silverstone after becoming the seventh different winner of the season.

Introduction to the British Superbike Championship

The MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship (BSB) continues to assert itself as the greatest domestic bike series in the world, and a producer of some of the sport’s hottest properties.

MCE BSB is famed for its close, dramatic racing and bikes average more than 180bhp and are capable of reaching 200mph. A control tyre (Pirelli) and tightly managed regulations ensures the grid is evenly matched with battles throughout the field. Riders battle wheel to wheel at speeds of up to 200mph and frequently lose control as they push to the limit.

MCE BSB has a huge following of fans who follow the championship around the UK, and that is a testament to the teams and riders who push themselves and their bikes to the limit, whilst never forgetting that they’re racing to entertain the massive crowds at the circuits. MotorSport Vision (MSV) acquired the organisational and commercial rights to BSB in 2008, and the series has benefitted massively from the company’s expertise and careful judgement. MCE BSB is now a globally recognised brand, broadcast live throughout Europe and Asia, with some of the world’s best riders and most prestigious manufacturers. And, above all, it’s possibly the most thrilling spectator sport on the planet!

The British Superbike Championship began in 1988, with bikes conforming to 750cc TT Formula I regulations, which the championship used through to 1993, when Superbike regulations were adopted. Niall Mackenzie was the most successful rider of the 1990s, with three titles. Other past champions include Neil Hodgson, Australian Troy Bayliss and Steve Hislop. Chris ‘the Stalker’ Walker has finished as runner up 4 times. Many riders from the series have gone on to race in the Superbike World Championship or MotoGP.

The 2006 British Superbike Championship was won by Ryuichi Kiyonari, in what was one of the most exciting climaxes to a British Superbike season in years. Kiyonari fought off the challenge of Ducati powered Leon Haslam and Gregorio Lavilla at the final round in Brands Hatch in front of a capacity crowd and a reported 1.5 million live TV viewers, with Kiyonari and Haslam each winning one race, and Lavilla crashing and having an engine problem in both races.

The 2009 British Superbike Championship was mainly dominated by the Yamaha of Leon Camier who set a new record of 14 race wins in a season at event eight of twelve, such was his domination of the championship, beating the previous record of 13 by Niall Mackenzie in the 1997 season. Guintoli, Brookes and Richards all missed races, allowing Stuart Easton of Hydrex Honda and Simon Andrews of MSS Colchester Kawasaki to challenge. It was claimed that BSB was the biggest supported British racing series, During 2009, 368,000 people attended BSB events across the country and 8,000,000 fans watched 310 hours of television on the live Eurosport and delayed ITV coverage.

For 2010, the Privateers cup was replaced by the Evolution Class. MSVR stated that “It will be open to anyone in the series from the official manufacturer-backed teams through to independent entries and will allow homologated machines with full Superbike racing rolling chassis to retain the very important visual impression but engines will have to be built to very stringent “Stock” regulations. Along with standard engines a series specified control ECU device that eliminates any form of traction control, launch control and anti-wheelie devices will be compulsory”.

Qualifying was also altered, with the “Roll for Pole” only setting the grid for race one of each weekend. This is due to the race two grid being set by the fastest laps of each rider in race one. Also introduced is a “second chance” system if a rider crashes on lap one, that rider will only drop eight places from where they started the first race. At the pair of triple-race meetings, the same rules apply for race two, but will also be applied for race three.

Perhaps the biggest rule change was the dividing of the championship into two parts, similar to the system used in three automobile racing series in the United States — the United Speed Alliance Four Champions Playoff, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase for the Sprint Cup, and National Hot Rod Association’s Countdown to the Championship.

The first nine meetings (19 races) form the “Main Season” of the championship, before the final three meetings (seven races) make up “The Showdown”. The championship change has been introduced after Leon Camier clinched the 2009 title with four races to spare, thus introducing a crescendo of competition.

The normal FIM point-scoring system still applies, with 25 for the winner and a single point for 15th. At the end of the Main Season, all riders then drop their two worst scores, which must be from events they have at least qualified for. From this points order, the first six riders in the championship standings will be elevated to a new base level and become the Title Fighters for the final three events and seven races of the championship.

Each Title Fighter will start The Showdown with 500 points, plus additional points for each podium position they have obtained in the Main Season; 3 for a win, 2 for a second, and 1 for a third, termed “Podium Credits”. Using the first nineteen races of Camier’s 2009 campaign, Camier would have had 547 points due to his fifteen wins and a second place out of the first nineteen races of the season.

The standard points scoring format from the Main Season then continues for The Showdown, with all points scores from the final seven races counting.All riders outside of the Title Fighters continue to race for the BSB Riders’ Cup, continuing to add to their points total from the end of the Main Season. This also applies to the new Evolution class.
For the 2012 season, MSVR announced a number of changes to the technical regulations to enhance the spectacle of the British Superbike Championship. The championship was to be limited to 32 entries, 16 two-bike teams. This was intended to be a way to reward the teams that have raced in BSB, year in, year out. Teams within the current BSB were invited to enter their two bike teams initially, with teams who wish to graduate to the BSB class having to buy an entry.
