One of the most exciting motorsports events of 2017 is the British Superbike (BSB) Championship. Attracting people from all over the world, the BSB is an ideal place for bike enthusiasts. This year’s season features an incredible line up of 32 season-long entries and six different manufacturers. Some of the riders involved include four-time champion Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne, three-time champion Ryuichi Kiyonari and John Hopkins. There’s also fresh talent on the scene, with 22-year-old Danny Buchan and 23-year-old Luke Mossey looking to make a name for themselves.

 

What makes the British Superbike Championship so exciting is the close, dramatic racing that can reach up to 200mph. Every rider is pushed to their limit as they battle to be the best on the track. Carole Nash ambassador, Leon Haslam, has been a part of the series, giving his all on behalf of Kawasaki. He’s been on a mission to make a lasting impression since he came onto the track. In the last race at Thruxton, he came in 5th place. Leon is currently ranked as second in the series. He’s also earned the fastest lap of the league, scoring three points. He’ll look to build on that momentum as the Championship continues.

 

The next race is happening at Cadwell Park on the 18th August and it’s sure to be thrilling. In the spirit of the event, we’re giving away VIP tickets for the rest of the season. This includes the races happening at Silverstone, Oulton Park, Assen and Brands Hatch GP.

 

The two VIP tickets give the winners a chance to see the action up close. You’ll also be able to go on a garage tour and meet the riders. To enter, all you have to do is call us for a motorbike quote by the 10th October. All quotes will be entered into the free prize draw pot and carried over into the next round. The winners for the Cadwell Park race will be chosen on the 15th August. There’s a pair of tickets to win for each round, which means you’ll be able to increase your odds of securing tickets.

The British Superbike Championship is a must-see event for motorbike fans. We want to wish Leon the best of luck for his next race and will continue to report on the season as it unfolds.
