Bennetts BSB title fight comes to Donington Park this October

Monday, September 09 2019

The six riders who'll compete for the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship title were confirmed in a three-race thriller at Oulton Park at the weekend - and you can see them in action when Donington Park hosts the penultimate round of the season on 4-6 October.

The battle for Showdown spots went down to the wire at Oulton Park, with Tarran Mackenzie and Peter Hickman claiming the final two places. MotoGP convert Scott Redding and his Be Wiser Ducati teammate Josh Brookes were already confirmed title fighters alongside Tommy Bridewell, who scored his first win of the season for the Oxford Racing Ducati team at Oulton Park's Showdown decider.

Danny Buchan booked his spot in the 2019 title fight in the first race at Oulton Park on Saturday, but Mackenzie and Hickman had to pick up points in the last race to assure themselves places.

Hickman, who sealed his Showdown spot in the final race last season too, joked: "I said earlier in the weekend that I didn't like to make things too boring and be confirmed already so I thought we'd just wait 'til the end."

The three-round Showdown kicks off at the Championship's only European meeting at Assen on 20-22 September before heading to the East Midlands venue's full Grand Prix circuit, with a finale at Brands Hatch in Kent on 18-20 October. 

Two Bennetts BSB races will headline the Donington Park weekend, with a superb support line-up including action from the Dickies British Supersport and Pirelli National Superstock 600 and 1000 Championships, plus the ever-popular British Sidecars. 

The weekend will feature a free pit walk, rider signing sessions, live music, a busy trade village and much, much more! 

Discounted advance tickets are available online now, priced £38 for the whole weekend and £28 for the main raceday, with reductions for teens aged 13-15. Kids under 13 go FREE! For more details and to book, click here.
