He has done it: the crucial ninth round of the 2019 British Superbike Championship (BSB) at Oulton Park (GBR) saw Peter Hickman (GBR) secure one of the coveted Showdown places on the new BMW S 1000 RR. The Smiths Racing rider was one point outside the all-important top-six in the championship ahead of the trip to Oulton Park.

Although he crashed out of race one, two eighth-places in races two and three earned Hickman enough points to make him one of the six riders who will battle it out for the title over the final three events of the season. “Practice and qualifying went really well and I was confident I could finish in the top-six in race one,” said Hickman.

 “The fact that I failed to finish due to a crash, which was not my fault, was a big disappointment. That made the second race difficult, as I had to start from way down the grid. However, we pulled ourselves together in race three and it is fantastic to be back in the Showdown again.

I’ll be giving it my all at the last three race weekends.” Christian Iddon (GBR / Tyco BMW) finished fifth and seventh in the first two races, but crashed in race three. Team-mate Glenn Irwin (GBR) was seventh, 15th and eighth.


In the Superstock class (BSB STK), Taylor Mackenzie (GBR / Bathams Racing) claimed another podium. He finished third in class in the second of the two. Mackenzie had previously come home sixth in race one.
