Season’s Greetings from Bennetts BSB

As we all take time to enjoy the festive season and Christmas and the New Year beckon, MSVR would like to thank everyone who made the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship such a success.

In particular to the 481,964 spectators who attended events to witness the spectacular action trackside and the many tens of millions more who watched around the globe on television, not forgetting everyone who continued to grow our series by interacting through our vibrant social media channels.

Of course we need to send a huge thank you to all the riders and teams across all the classes 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 Scott Redding on securing his first Bennetts BSB title victory for the Be Wiser Ducati team and we toast all the other 2019 champions – Jack Kennedy, Kyle Ryde, Brandon Paasch, Scott Ogden, Richard Cooper, Korie McGreevy, Elliot Pinson, Josh Day, Todd Ellis and Charlie Richardson.

Bennetts are a valued title sponsor of the series and will continue next year, and together we have delivered an incredible season in 2019, giving their customers an unrivalled rewards programme and fans to get closer to the action at each round of the series.

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 2019 season lived up to the hype and delivered an outstanding season. Over the season there were an impressive seven different race winners and a further five podium finishers representing nine different teams and six manufacturers to finish inside the top three – showing just how competitive BSB is and the robustness of our technical regulations.

The final Showdown went down to the wire and after the final race of the season just five points separated Scott Redding and Josh Brookes for the title. The Title Fighter line-up featured five different teams, representing four different manufacturers, with Oxford Racing Ducati and FS-3 Racing Kawasaki making the cut for the first time, and Redding, Danny Buchan and Tarran Mackenzie too!

We have already started the countdown to the opening round of 2020, which will kick off at Silverstone on April 10/11/12. We can’t wait because if this season was anything to go by, we are in for a spectacular new season.

Whilst our new champion this season, Scott Redding, moves on to the Superbike World Championship with the factory Ducati team, we have a new line-up to look forward to and a new champion to crown in 2020.

And don't forget if you can't wait until next April then you can still relive all the action from the 2019 season over the festive season courtesy of ITV4 and British Eurosport, including a special programme on Eurosport 2 reliving the Tommy Hill and John Hopkins incredible 2011 season finale, narrated by the riders themselves.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

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