The 2018 Bennetts British Superbikes Championship (BSB) begins again at Donington Park GP this Easter Weekend! There is a packed weekend of racing on offer, and with being over the bank holiday weekend, the qualifying rounds take place on Sunday with the races being held on Monday.
This is the fourth season of Briggs supporting the RAF Regular and Reserves team, managed by Lee Hardy. We’re pleased that they’ve once again got Jake Dixon riding the Superbike, sticking with the Kawasaki which brought him a double victory at the Knockhill circuit in 2017 and Jordan Weaving also returns for the new season, riding the Briggs Equipment bike in the Superstock 1000 series.
The qualifying rounds will be aired on Sunday at 2:30pm on Eurosport 1, so be sure to tune in for some breathtaking moments on the track.
You can also follow the riders and show them your support in the lead up to the racing; @JordanWeaving34 and @DixonJake.
