Season’s Greetings from Bennetts BSB

As Christmas and the New Year beckon, MSVR would like to thank everyone who made the 2020 Bennetts British Superbike Championship such a success, against the odds, and also for the unwavering support from our fans around the world during these tough times.

2020 has been a year that was full of uncertainty, but despite the unprecedented challenges, we were delighted that we could deliver another sensational season of racing that could bring some normality and relief to an otherwise difficult time.

We have particularly missed our fans trackside at events; the atmosphere has not been the same without the circuits lined by spectators getting to enjoy the action up close. But we would like to thank you all for your continued support, with tens of millions of you who watched around the globe on television, and everyone who continued to grow and get involved with our series by interacting through our social media channels throughout the year.

Of course we need to thank all of the riders and teams across the classes, who remained resilient despite everything, who once again provided non-stop entertainment and immeasurable competition at each and every round; your talent, skill, commitment and professionalism continues to make BSB highly respected amongst all other motorsport championships in the world.

Congratulations to Josh Brookes on winning his second Bennetts BSB crown and to the VisionTrack Ducati team and PBM for successfully securing their eighth BSB title. We also toast all of our support class champions – Rory Skinner, Mason Law, Franco Bourne, Chrissy Rouse, Ben Luxton, Owen Jenner and Josh Day.

Bennetts are a valued title sponsor of the series, and together we have delivered an incredible season in 2020, and we would like to thank them for their commitment to the sport and to giving our fans special loyalty offers through their continued Bennetts Rewards programme.

Our sincere appreciation also goes out to all our commercial and media partners, who are an integral part of the series.

The Bennetts BSB show would simply not be possible without the commitment and skills of the Racesafe marshals, the race organisation and our outstanding medical team, the latter who have also been working tirelessly throughout the pandemic in their roles within the NHS, and so we thank them for their incredible work and dedication.

The 2020 season was despite the delay, worth the wait and the season delivered an incredible display of racing. Over the season there were an impressive eight different race winners and a further two podium finishers representing six different teams and five manufacturers to finish inside the top three – showing just how competitive BSB is and the robustness of our technical regulations.

The title went down to the wire at Brands Hatch after a hallmark race to open the finale on the Grand Prix circuit. As Brookes became champion for the second time, Jason O'Halloran and Christian Iddon claimed their best results in the series to finish in second and third place respectively in the overall standings.

We now look ahead to hopefully a more positive 2021 where we hope that we can welcome the return of spectators to the tracks. We have already started the countdown to the opening round of 2021, which will kick off at Oulton Park in May.  We can’t wait, because if this season was anything to go by, we are in for a spectacular new season.  A number of key announcements have already been made concerning rider and team line-ups and new manufacturers across the classes.

And don't forget if you can't wait until next year then you can still relive all the action from the 2020 season over the festive season courtesy of ITV4 and British Eurosport.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Stuart Higgs, MSVR and the entire Bennetts British Superbike Championship team
