The Motorpoint British Supersport Championship protected by Datatag continues to lead the support class line-up and has become the place for manufacturers to go head-to-head and upcoming talent to be discovered with Leon Camier, Cal Crutchlow, Tom Sykes and Sam Lowes all progressing from this class.

The 2011 Championship was possibly the best season of all time, the endless battles between Alastair Seeley and Ben Wilson ensured that the class was on everyone's viewing schedule. Fans and the media were talking as much about Supersport as they were about Superbike. The TAS Suzuki team snatched victory by just one point from Gearlink Kawasaki at the final race of the year to claim their second Supersport title in five years with Seeley ensuring that he secured a British Superbike for 2012.

The quality of the racing must be attributed to the introduction last year of a MoTeC control ECU removing traction control, launch control and anti-wheelie functions levelling the class for all competitors. The electronics regulations remain the same for 2012 and the Supersport Cup will again form part of the Supersport race, with 2011 winner John Simpson competing in the main championship. The Cup will allow only one wildcard entry with kit electronics before being required to conform to the control ECU regulation.

This season sees another high calibre field, with the return of 2011 runner up Ben Wilson, talented young riders Taylor Mackenzie and Jack Kennedy joining forces for MarTrain Yamaha, Perth born Kev Coghlan riding for Appleyard/Macadam, Superstock 600 graduates Deane Brown, James East, Jonathan Lodge and Craig Neve plus Sam Warren returning with Seton Tuning.

Entrants in the Supersport class must be 16 years of age or over and, in principle, have a minimum of 2 years experience at National level.
