It has been a predictably close and exciting start to the British Superbike Championship. There have been 5 different race winners after only 8 races of the season! Another 5 podium finishers and it means it will be more difficult than ever to make it into the end of season showdown.
Leon Haslam, aboard the JG Speedfit Kawasaki leads the championship ahead of Shane Byrne in second position and Tyco BMW rider, Christian Iddon in third. Haslam will be pleased how quickly he has adapted his riding, after spending almost a decade away from the tight and twisty British tracks and having to revert to no traction control and less advanced electronics than he has been used to.
