Nearly four months after the original planned start date, the curtailed 2020 British Superbikes season makes its much anticipated return today (Friday 7th August) at Donington Park.
There are three races to kick off the revised schedule of six triple-header events and with no Showdown this year, this is a straight 18-race fight for the title.
Briggs Equipment is once again sponsoring the Smiths Racing BMW team and the exciting partnership of Peter Hickman and Alex Olsen.
Hickman is firmly established as the world’s fastest road racer, whilst Olsen is widely recognised as one of the brightest prospects on the circuit, and they will both be looking for more success during the 2020 schedule.
Briggs Equipment’s Marketing Manager, David Turner, commented: “We’re thrilled that the new season is finally here and we’re looking forward to seeing the action get underway. Pete and Alex are two of the most exciting riders around and having spoken to the team over the last few months we know that they’re raring to go after the delayed start.
“The British Superbikes competition provides us with an excellent platform to showcase our brand to an international audience, and with the events taking place behind closed doors we’re anticipating increased viewership via television and online channels. Eurosport, ITV and ITV4 are just some of the media outlets where you’ll be able to watch live and highlight coverage.
“Everyone at Briggs would like to wish everyone at Smith’s Racing the very best of luck over the coming months!”
