Big Brands Bash - the countdown is on!

Monday, July 16 2018

Just ONE WEEK until the Bennetts British Superbike Championship returns to Kent for the 'Big Brands Bash' on 20-22 July - and it promises to be an incredible weekend on and off the track.

Racing is on the full Grand Prix circuit and features two headline Bennetts BSB races on Sunday, plus a fantastic support line-up throughout the weekend from Pirelli National Superstock 600/1000, British Supersport and British Sidecars.

'Pocket Rocket' Leon Haslam and Jake Dixon shared the spoils last time out at Knockhill, with Dixon capitalising on a Haslam mistake in race one to take the points and Haslam returning the favour in race two. Haslam now leads the championship from Dixon by 74 points, with Brands Hatch local Bradley Ray third going into his local round.

Ray will be flying the flag for Kent in the absence of Brands Hatch favourite Shane 'Shakey' Byrne, who is still sidelined with an injury picked up in testing. Ray took the first two races of the season at Donington Park and will be keen to impress in front of his home crowd.

Aside from the track action, there's the Monster Energy rig with rider appearances and a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the legendary Yamaha YZF-R1 complete with celebrity riders and an owners track parade.

The weekend will see our biggest campsite of the summer, with a superb live music stage sponsored by Heineken on Saturday night. The headline act is Madness tribute band The Los Palmas 6, supported by Who Are You UK and Led Zeppelin tribute Coda.

And then there's heaps of trade stalls to browse, and plenty of attractions to keep the kids entertained including fairground rides, face painting, bouncy castles and Diggerland mini diggers.

Adult weekend tickets are £37 online, but only until midday on Wednesday so don't miss out! There are reductions for teens too and kids under 13 go FREE! Save on postage with our print-at-home ticket option. For more information and to buy, click here
