UP to 15,000 motorbike fans are set to descend on West Fife this weekend when one of the country’s most prestigious events returns.

The Bennetts British Superbike Championship, which is regarded as the world’s leading domestic competition, arrives at Knockhill Racing Circuit for three-days of top class, wheel-to-wheel action tomorrow (Friday).

Complete with a packed programme of support classes, the eagerly anticipated event begins tomorrow (Friday) and continues until its conclusion on Sunday.

Circuit bosses are anticipating five-figure crowds to attend over the course of the weekend, who will watch the best riders from across Britain go head-to-head for points in the race for title glory.

The Knockhill event is the fourth of 11 rounds in the championship, which will conclude at Brands Hatch in October, and has already visited venues such as Silverstone, Oulton Park and Donington Park.

Just 10 points separate the top five riders in the standings, with Tommy Bridewell, with 119, leading the way ahead of Glenn Irwin (116); Josh Brookes (114); Leon Haslam (110); and Kyle Ryde (109), and the teams started to arrive at Scotland’s national motorsport centre from Tuesday.

Stuart Gray, director of events at Knockhill, said: “The guys have been out putting the finishing touches on the circuit, the grass cutting, painting, all that kind of stuff. It’s all systems go.

“We’re hoping for 15,000 over the course of the three days. This is unusual in it’s a three-day event, with practice and some qualifying on the Friday. Touring cars (which visits Knockhill over the weekend of August 12-13) is only a two-day event, but it’s big numbers.

“It’s good for us, good for the fans, and good for the local area as well.”

Ahead of the event, which will be particularly poignant as it is held 20 years since the passing of two-time Scottish British Superbike champion, Steve Hislop, we have teamed-up with Knockhill to give away two adult tickets for Sunday’s final day of racing.
