Blog: BSB’s open dialogue ensures a bright future

rating is 3.5 British Superbikes

Gary Pinchin, 23 September 2009 10:41

By now I’m guessing you’ll have read about the new BSB Evo class that’s going to be introduced next year. Personally, I think it’s the only way forward for superbike racing in the current economic climate – standard engines, a control ecu and superbike chassis – plus a one bike per rider rule. Not only will it slash costs it ...

BSB Blog: The silly season starts here

Naturally the chat in the cramped Cadwell pit lane during the Bank Holiday MCE British Superbike championship round was all about GSE Racing and last week’s announcement that Airwaves would not be backing them in 2010. There wasn’t a lot of substance but plenty of supposition, the biggest one being, ‘what if GSE don’t find a backer to replace Airwaves?’ ...

BSB Blog: Hey, give Tommy Hill a break

I’ve got to say I’m a bit surprised at the amount of negativity around the web forums towards Tommy Hill getting the Worx Suzuki for Mallory BSB this weekend.I don’t really understand it.   On one hand you get people complaining that the top rides should be given to the younger riders, then when a 24-year-old gets picked, it causes a ...

BSB blog: Not over ‘till it’s over

What’s that American cliché for not counting your chickens too quickly? It’s not over ‘till it’s over? Well it could be over a lot sooner than Leon Camier’s rivals think unless they come up with a new game plan to take the races to the Airwaves Yamaha star.  Neither Camier nor the Airwaves Yamaha team are the sort of people ...

BSB blog:The battle of the BSB Yamahas

I’m not surprised that GSE racing issued a press statement, saying they’ve ‘postponed’ their planned testing schedule in Europe. Things have been very quiet on the Airwaves Yamaha front this winter but, from what I heard last week, their GSE Racing technicians were finally in Italy, building bikes. Get all the latest BSB news I’d heard there had been delays ...

Blog: Can Hydrex Honda step up a gear?

Last Friday’s Hydrex Honda launch was an impressive show of team owner Shaun Muir’s long-term commitment to the sport. The team’s new workshop facility in Guisborough is by far one of the most outstanding all new facilities in BSB and the fact that Muir has a three-rider team and is building seven bikes is an impressive display of the team’s ...

BSB bikes under development

I’ve had the privilege to go behind the closed doors of some British Superbike team workshops this past couple of weeks, namely Relentless Suzuki, Cresent Suzuki, and Rob Mac Racing Yamaha and it’s fascinating to see the 2009 bikes gradually coming together. Two weeks ago the Relentless by TAS team were still waiting on swing-arms and suspension parts so their bike ...

BSB well-placed to weather the storm

“Is Jonathan Palmer completely delusional? He’s lost his best riders. The top guys left are all old. The teams are struggling like any other businesses. "Yet he’s predicting crowds will only drop off by 5% and says BSB won’t be affected by the recession. Interesting!” That was the emotional outburst I heard in the office from a non-racing person as ...

BSB blog 2009 – plenty of sub plots

It may be a long way off to the start of the British Superbike season – and it’ll seem even longer with a predicted cutback in pre-season testing. But that hasn’t stopped talk in the MCN office about BSB’s prospects for 2009. There’s no denying that in the past two seasons, BSB hasn’t just lost its top riders, it’s lost ...
