Bennetts BSB stars to battle for £50,000 prize this August

Thursday, June 10 2021

There will be a heavy-duty addition to the Bennetts British Superbike Championship this August, when the contenders fight it out for the chance to scoop a £50,000 prize in the Milwaukee Summer Grand Slam.

The Bennetts BSB Milwaukee Summer Grand Slam will comprise the six races across two rounds at Donington Park (13-15 August) and Cadwell Park (20-22 August).

The overall £50,000 prize will be available to any of the 28 riders confirmed for the 2021 Bennetts BSB grid if they can win all six races across the two events. If nobody manages to win every race, there will still be an opportunity to take home £25,000 for winning five of the six races, or £10,000 for winning four. 

Bennetts British Superbike Championship Series Director Stuart Higgs commented: "The condensed calendar is set to provide an intense level competition as it is and the Milwaukee Summer Grand Slam with the potential £50,000 prize will bring an extra dimension to the Donington Park and Cadwell Park events. These rounds are always a favourite with our fans and fall in the crucial middle period of the championship." 

MILWAUKEE General Manager Dale McElveen said: "We were already looking forward to the Bennetts British Superbike Championship following our recently announced partnership, but the reveal of the Milwaukee Summer Grand Slam just brings an extra level of anticipation to the season. This is something new for the Milwaukee King of Donington and Milwaukee King of the Mountain rounds and we are excited to see if anyone can complete the feat - it should prove to be a thrilling competition. I look forward to hopefully handing the £50k to the successful rider!"
