10 Sep 2021 - 12 Sep 2021 10 Sep 2021 09:00:00 12 Sep 2021 18:00:00 Europe/London British Superbike Championship 2021 10th - 12th September Silverstone Circuit


 The British Superbike Championship returns to Silverstone in 2021 for Round 8!

The 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.

BSB is famed for its close, dramatic racing and bikes average more than 200bhp 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 as they push to the limit.

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.  BSB is a globally recognised brand, broadcast live throughout Europe, Asia and America, 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!

Introduction to the Bennetts British Superbike Championship

The Bennetts British Superbike series is widely-regarded as the closest and hardest-fought domestic superbike championship in the world and always guarantees exciting racing.

The current championship can be traced back to 1988 but has many years of various championships in history before that too – the United Kingdom has always had a love for superbike racing. The combination of bikes resembling those you can buy and multiple races across a weekend has always been a winner with British fans.

The British Superbike Championship in what most closely resembles today’s series began in 1988, with bikes racing under 750cc TT Formula I regulations. The championship stuck with these rules through to the end of 1993 but from 1994 onwards Superbike regulations were adopted. There have been changes along the way but essentially, the rules remain remarkably similar.

Niall Mackenzie was the most successful rider of the 1990s, taking three titles with other past champions including Neil Hodgson, Australian Troy Bayliss and the late Steve Hislop. Chris Walker has finished as runner-up four times.

Many riders from the series have gone on to race in the Superbike World Championship or MotoGP; such is the high level of the racing. Other famous riders who have gone onto great global racing success include Cal Crutchlow, Jonathan Rea, Tom Sykes, Leon Camier, Leon Haslam and Scott Redding.

For the 2012 season, MSVR announced a number of changes to the technical regulations to increase the competitiveness of the British Superbike Championship and these regulations remain in place today. These changes enforced a standard motorcycle ECU for all bikes and outlawed all electronic rider aids like traction control and wheelie control in an effort to reduce costs and keep the racing close.

The level of competition in the past few seasons has been intense; part of this season-long tension has been thanks to the ‘Showdown’ championship scoring format which ensures no one can win the title too early as the series always goes down to a final six riders capable of winning over the final few rounds.

The ‘Showdown’ consists of six riders who have to score enough points to be eligible – their points are then wiped out and they all reset and fight for the title. From this point on, the top six riders in the championship standings become the ‘Title Fighters’ for the final three events. Each Title Fighter begins The Showdown with 500 points, plus additional points for each podium position they obtained in the Main Season: 5 for a win, 3 for a second, and 1 for a third.

The standard points scoring format from the Main Season then continues for The Showdown, with all points scores from the final seven races counting.

The reigning BSB champion is Visontrack Ducati’s Josh Brookes who won the disrupted and shortened 2020 season ahead of McAMS Yamaha rider Jason O’Halloran in second and Brookes’ Ducat teammate Christian Iddon in third.
