The 2011 British superbike season saw the most dramatic finale in its history, with the new electrifying showdown format, only 6 riders can compete for the title. Reigning champion, Japanese rider Ryuichi Kiyonari, beset with personal problems attempts to defend his crown. The bad boy Australian Josh Brookes was runner up in 2010 and is determined to battle his way to the top, no matter what. Ex BSB champ, Shane ‘Shakey' Byrne, is the fans favourite and all round good guy, looking to regain the crown for pride's sake. Michael Laverty, the Irish Flyer wants to put his stamp on the title for his country, whilst for the first time in the UK, ex Moto GP star John Hopper Hopkins, back to racing after overcoming his personal demons and substance abuse problems. Hopkins is the first American with a realistic chance of winning the title, and added to the mix, British hero Tommy Hill who spectacularly lost the title last year by one small error, is absolutely determined to prove himself the British Superbike champion.ONLY ONE CAN BE WINNER.
With the live Q&A hosted by ex-champ and TV commentator James Whitham, featuring Stuart Higgs British Superbikes series director, showdown riders Shane Byrne, Michael Laverty and reigning British Champion Tommy Hill alongside film director, Mark Sloper.
