Knockhill Bennetts BSB Guide

We’re just days away from the biggest motorcycle racing event at Knockhill this year – when we welcome the Bennetts British Superbike Championship and six other support classes for three intense days of competition starting on Friday 28th June – through to the all-important Bennetts BSB raceday on Sunday 30th June that will see two 30-lap BSB races.

Interestingly, out of all the current Bennetts BSB riders, none have won a race over the 1.27miles of Knockhill’s clockwise layout (in the premier class) – therefore we’ll will see history made this weekend where one, possibly two riders will claim the title of Knockhill race winner.

The Championship is finely balanced with three Ducati riders topping out the table in P1, P2 and P3. Josh Brookes (P3) heads to Knockhill with possibly the most experience, however you have to go back to 2015 to find the last time the Australian took a podium at Knockhill. Former Moto GP star Scott Redding comes into the weekend with very little former experience of the track; a track, which will seem alien compared to the tracks he rode in Moto2 and MotoGP. However, he’s a game lad and will certainly be giving it a go this weekend.

Current Championship leader Tommy Bridewell isn’t too sure how is Oxford Racing Ducati will perform this weekend – however, he is determined to rack up more podium credits to help his showdown cause. Over the past few years, Kawasaki has been the bike to have at Knockhill. Jake Dixon, Leon Haslam and current BSB rider Danny Buchan have all been strong. Mix in the form of the McAMS Yamaha team this season, they’ve been mighty fast at most tracks and even jointly led the Championship before the last round with Tarran Mackenzie – before an unfortunate concussion ruled the young Scot out of proceedings at Brands Hatch. That said, he’s back this weekend and looking to make an impression alongside his vastly experienced teammate Jason O’Halloran.

A number of riders have already tested the circuit this year, including a private test for the Honda duo of Xavi Forés and Andrew Irwin – could they be on for a win at Knockhill where the Honda has been strong in recent years. Or perhaps Knockhill will kick start the season’s of Glenn Irwin, Brad Ray or maybe even James Ellison. Peter Hickman will be back for another tilt at success aboard his Smith Racing BMW whilst Dan Linfoot (Yamaha) and Luke Mossey (Suzuki) will aim to propel their new machinery for 2019 as far up the grid as possible.

It’s going to be a real intriguing weekend of action at Knockhill. And, just to give you a bit of info if you have already booked tickets (or are planning too) here’s some important info about the venue this weekend including ticket collection, VIP Hospitality, track crossings, disabled parking, camping and more with resident front-man Duncan Vincent.
