Munich. The 2017 season of the fiercely contested British Superbike Championship (BSB) has ended with another successful weekend for the BMW riders. The final round was held at Brands Hatch (GBR) and saw three podium finishes for the BMW S 1000 RR. Christian Iddon (GBR / Tyco BMW) secured two second-places in the Superbike class (BSB SBK) races. In the overall championship standings, Peter Hickman (GBR / Smiths Racing) is the highest placed BMW rider, finishing the season in fourth. In the Superstock class (BSB STK) race, Tyco BMW rider Josh Elliott (GBR) was third on the rostrum.

 

To wrap up the season, the fans at Brands Hatch witnessed a grand finale with no fewer than three races held in the Superbike class. Iddon was second in both races one and two. In the final race, the Tyco BMW rider crossed the line in fifth. The results also secured Iddon the “Rider’s Cup”, the trophy for the best rider in the championship standings outside the title showdown.

 

The showdown is contested during the final three race weekends of the season between the top six riders in the standings after round nine. One of them was Smiths Racing rider Hickman, who this season qualified for the showdown for the first time. At the final round, he claimed two sixths and one seventh place to finish the season in fourth overall.

 

Christian Iddon: “It’s great to finish the season on a high. We raced well and the boys gave me a great bike.  It’s definitely a direction we can go in for next season, so for me everything is positive.  A big thank you to all the team for putting a great bike underneath me, sponsors for their continued support and of course the fantastic BSB fans – see you all in 2018!”

 

Peter Hickman: “I’ve finished every race bar one, have never been lower than ninth and to finish fourth overall behind three world class riders is a good achievement. We were the top BMW team and everyone at Smiths Racing has been fantastic all year so a massive thanks to everyone.”

 

In the Superstock class it was Elliott’s turn to secure a podium finish for the BMW S 1000 RR. The Tyco BMW rider was third, while Chrissy Rouse (GBR / Mission Racing) followed directly behind in fourth. Joe Collier (GBR / Team IMR) and Adam Jenkinson (GBR / Northern Escalator Installations) also claimed top-ten results, finishing in ninth and tenth respectively. In the Superstock class championship standings, the highest placed BMW rider is Michael Rutter (GBR / Bathams SMT Racing) in third place. Rouse ended the season in fourth overall with Jenkinson in fifth.
