MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship
Brands Hatch (Indy)
Friday 05 - Sunday 07 April 2013

The MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship kick-starts its 2013 season with the traditional opener at Brands Hatch this weekend. The talking stops as old rivalries are resumed and new rider and team combinations are tested, and there's always a big chance of a major upset to the established order!

It's also a chance to catch the first glimpse of this year's likely title contenders, with reigning champion Shakey Byrne and fellow triple-champ Ryuichi Kiyonari sure to be racing head-to-head. Meanwhile up and coming talents like Alex Lowes and the rest of the field will be aiming to stamp their authority with wins at the season opener.

A packed support programme of races will also provide superb entertainment throughout the weekend - make sure you are in the crowd to see and experience it live!
