It’s a fond welcome back to ‘Bennetts Motorcycle Insurance’ who return to take over as title sponsor of the 2018 British Superbike Championship.
Year on year BSB continues to amaze, & certainly sets the standard for others to follow, being widely regarded as the greatest domestic bike series in the world.
Renowned for its close & dramatic racing, the Series regularly attracts tens upon tens of thousands of fans track side to each of the twelve rounds. Equally, all rounds are televised live being transmitted not only in the UK but also Europe & Asia.
As well as the feature 200+hp Superbikes, BSB includes a full programme of support races involving Moto3, Superstock 600 & 1000, Supersports, Ducati’s and Sidecars.
Ever progressive, BSB promoters MSVR have also included two new categories for 2018;
British GP2…. which will allow for current Honda-powered Moto2 machinery that has been used in World & European Championship competition as well as new independent constructor projects utilising any 600cc four cylinder or 675cc three cylinder engines to a technical specification very similar to Stock 600.
The British GP2 class will race side by side with the current Supersports, but will be separately classified.
British Junior Supersport…… for riders aged 14 – 22 years and replaces the KTM RC Cup.
The new class is open to all manufacturers, is budget friendly and will effectively mirror the hugely successful FIM Supersport 300 World Championship that in it’s inaugural year witnessed some amazing races.

In addition to the above, the all new British Talent Cup, run in association with Dorna (commercial & TV rights holders for FIM World Championships) will also feature on a few of the BSB rounds during 2018.
