Dickies 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.

HEL Performance 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.
