The momentum is building for the opening round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch this Easter (18/19/20/21 April) with the teams currently hard at work in preparation for the forthcoming official pre-season tests.
As several of the leading contenders head to Spain initially for testing, Almeria will host three days for all classes on 25/26/27 March before the UK based official test days. The first official UK test of the season will take place at Donington Park on 1 April, featuring sessions for not only for MCE BSB and Motorpoint British Supersport contenders but also the Superstock classes and the one make Ducati TriOptions Cup and the Triumph Triple Challenge riders. This will be the first chance for fans to see the teams and riders on track ahead of the opening round of the season at Brands Hatch.
The teams and riders will then head to Snetterton as the Norfolk circuit holds a further two day test on the popular 300 circuit on 8/9 April, giving fans another opportunity to see MCE BSB in action ahead of the first race of the season later in the month.
Brands Hatch then kicks off the season over the Easter weekend with a four-day opener and ahead of the second round of the Championship at Oulton Park on the traditional May Bank Holiday weekend the teams will get an opportunity to test at the Cheshire circuit on 25 April.
