BSB: Bosses commit to Supersport and Superstock 600 classes for 2018/19

Published: 10 September 2017

MCE British Superbike bosses have pledged commitment to the future of 600cc production racing for at least the next two years.

With most manufacturers having discontinued their 600cc sports bikes, questions surrounding the future of the Supersport and Superstock 600 classes have been raised after the introduction of several Moto2-type machines this year.

However, series organisers Motorsport Vision Racing have today announced that they will continue to run both the Supersport and Superstock 600 classes in both 2018 and 2019.

The addition of a Moto2-style category remains under consideration with the general idea to introduce an affordable Moto2 option alongside the Supersport class.

The statement read: “To quell any further speculation, MSVR wish to confirm their intention to run championships for current Supersport and Superstock 600 technical levels in 2018 and 2019.

“While the long term availability of material remains unclear, we are satisfied that the current manufacturer models and parts availability will enable teams to continue to compete for at least 2018 and 2019.

“The addition of a prototype 600 class (internally called Economy Moto2) alongside Supersport remains under consideration.”
