MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship
Brands Hatch (GP)
Friday 18 - Sunday 20 October 2013

The MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship finale on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit is one of the must-see events on the motorsport calendar. Five riders head to Kent this weekend aiming to take home the coveted trophy and follow in the footsteps of riding legends, but the leading contenders are season-long protagonists Shane Byrne and Alex Lowes. The pair are separated by a single point with 75 available at Brands Hatch! 

Three MCE BSB races will decide the 2013 title and if previous years are anything to go by, there's every chance the championship's destiny will be decided on the last lap of the final race! Expect wheel-to-wheel, heart-stopping, high adrenaline action all the way around the Grand Prix circuit.

A packed support programme of races will also provide superb entertainment throughout the weekend - this is one event you cannot miss!

PLEASE NOTE - THE FIRST MCE BSB RACE TAKES PLACE AFTER QUALIFYING ON SATURDAY. A FURTHER TWO WILL TAKE PLACE ON SUNDAY (MAIN RACEDAY).

ADVANCE BOOKING HAS NOW CLOSED. TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE AT THE GATE.

MCE British Superbike Championship

MCE BSB is regarded as the world's leading domestic bike championship. The machines can reach 200mph and are piloted by some of the best riders on the planet, whilst the racing is fierce and frenetic, attracting a huge following in the UK and beyond.

Motorpoint British Supersport Championship

With a selection of leading manufacturers and riders assembled on the grid, the BSB’s leading support category is a top class series in its own right.

Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship

The Pirelli National Superstock 1000 is a series fast developing a reputation for producing top class talent. Many past competitors have graduated to BSB level, so the current crop will be keen to emulate their performances!

Pirelli National Superstock 600 Championship

This is the Junior of the two Superstock classes and allows grids of aspiring young riders aged between 16 and 25 cutting their teeth before moving up to the next level.

British Sidecar Championship

Unlike anything else on the MCE BSB package, these beasts have three wheels and two riders. With one man at the helm and the other dancing around to maintain the balance, this offers a very unique form of motorised entertainment.

Triumph Triple Challenge

A competitive one-make series with factory backing. Riders here will be pushing hard to earn a prize ride in the Supersport Cup or Superstock 600. A grid of Triumph Daytona 675Rs take to the track in a battle of the British bruisers.

Motul British Motostar

Riders as young as 13 can compete in this series featuring predominantly 125GP bikes, though 2012 also saw the introduction of Moto3 machines. The class class remains the last bastion of two stroke power for young rider development.

BRITTEN'S PARADE

The legendary Kawasaki Triples will take pride of place on Brittten's Parade throughout the weekend. These three cylinder, two stroke bikes became extremely popular for being the fastest bikes for their engine size. But while they were fast, they became infamous for the severe handling problems with the 750cc triple earning prehaps the most notorious nickname in motorcycle history, 'the widowmaker'. Riders Mick Grant and Barry Ditchburn placed 1st and 2nd in the 1975 MCN Superbike series on race versions of the H2 750cc Triple.
