British Superbike Championship: Grand finale at Brands Hatch.

The 2019 season of the British Superbike Championship (BSB) drew to a close with the grand finale on the Grand Prix Circuit at Brands Hatch (GBR). The final weekend featured three races and BMW S 1000 RR riders again enjoyed good results. Christian Iddon (GBR) was in contention for a spot on the podium on his Tyco BMW Motorrad RR in all three races. He came home fourth in race one, just 0.778 seconds behind third-placed Scott Redding (GBR / Ducati), who went on to take the title. Iddon then finished fifth in race two and fourth again in the third and final race. Peter Hickman (GBR) was seventh, eighth and fifth on the Smiths Racing RR. Taylor Mackenzie (GBR / Tyco BMW Motorrad), who has made the step up from Superstock to the Superbike class, finished tenth in the first two races and eleventh in race three. Alex Olsen (GBR / Smiths Racing), who has also recently moved from Superstock to Superbike, ended the weekend with three 13th places to his name.


The best-placed BMW racer in the final Riders’ Championship is Hickman, who had qualified for one of the coveted places in the title Showdown. Hickman eventually ended the season in sixth place. Iddon secured seventh place overall at the finale, making him the ‘Rider’s Cup Champion’ – the title for the best-placed rider outside the Showdown.


In the Superstock race, Daniel Cooper (GBR / Impcross Engineering Racing) was the best-placed BMW racer in ninth. Michael Rutter (GBR / Bathams Racing) came home twelfth. Andrew Reid (GBR / Tyco BMW Motorrad) and Rob McNealy (GBR / McNealy Brown) also picked up points in 13th and 14th place respectively. As the title race had already been decided, Taylor Mackenzie did not compete in the Superstock race this time, instead opting to focus on the Superbike class. Despite that, he still finished runner-up in the final Riders’ Championship. Alex Olsen, who also decided not to compete in the Superstock race, ended the season in fifth place, making him the second-best BMW racer in the championship.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
