The 2017 British Superbike Championship- What to Expect!


With the championship giving us some of the most exciting racing on two wheels, we give you the lowdown read for April!

BeWiser PBM Ducati:

There’s no change in term of reigning champions, with Shane Byrne and Glen Irwin competing again on Panigale R’s, we’re sure they’ll be a force to be reckoned with. Shane is a five time champ and Irwin a podium finisher in an incredibly impressive first season.

JG Speedfit Kawasaki:

Kawasaki have enjoyed two great seasons with Luke Mossey, and with more support this year is looking to be a breakthrough season for heaps of young talent! Leon Haslam will be on the hunt to win the title; both riders will be in undoubtedly in the fight for the title.

McCams Yamaha

James Ellison and Michael Laverty are both looking to take their first championships in the British premier class, these guys have finally made the step up the big class; and they’re ready!

Tyco BMW

BMW have had their fair share of bad luck but they’re back this year and stronger than ever. The signing of former European Superstock champion Davide Guigliano shows that they mean business! They also made a great move keeping Christian Iddon after his awesome results in 2016!

Honda Racing :

Get ready to be blown away by the amazing new Fireblade from Honda at this year’s championship and keep your eyes peeled for O’Halloran and Linfoot there’s no saying what they will be capabkle of on the new model after that brilliant showing last year.

Bennetts Suzuki

The reigning Superstock 1000 champions have promoted Taylor Mackenzie to the role of Superbike, and signed Sylvan Guintoli for a full-on title attack.

Quattro Plant FS-3 Kawasaki:
With the support of UK Racing Division and the experienced Billy McConnell  on-board for another year, they’ll definitely be on the hunt for a showdown spot.

So that’s how the British Superbike Championship is shaping up at the moment, and it looks to be a good one! We can’t wait to see the new Fireblade in action and get a glimpse of someone of the brilliant new talent that’s sure to break through this year. What do think will unfold at this years championship? Who are you most looking forward to see tear up the track? Us for one can’t wait to see Beryne and Glenn of team BeWiser PMB Ducati own the track on those super trick Panigale R’s.
