Bennetts BSB at Brands – one week to go!

Friday, April 06 2018

Just one week until the 2018 Bennett's British Superbike Championship arrives at Brands Hatch (13-15 April), with rivalry between local hero Shane 'Shakey' Byrne and young Kent challenger Bradley Ray expected to be fierce.

Twenty-year-old Ray won both races in the Bennetts BSB season-opener at Donington Park over the Easter weekend in challenging conditions, while Byrne was runner-up in the first race and finished fifth in the second. The Kent pair are now 1-2 in the championship table going into round two next weekend at Brands Hatch.

Byrne, who is determined to register a seventh championship win and third title defence, said: "I want to be back on the top step of the podium again and where better than my home circuit of Brands Hatch?"

Meanwhile, 'Pocket Rocket' Leon Haslam has plenty to prove after losing the 2017 title to Byrne in the final race of the season at Brands Hatch, starting the weekend with a 32-point advantage before crashing out and handing Byrne his sixth championship.
