Bennetts British Superbikes season launch

Bennetts British Superbikes gave a taster of the season ahead at the recent final test day ahead of the opening round at Silverstone this  weekend.

All eyes were on ex Moto GP rider Scott Redding as he prepared to make his BSB debut on the Be Wiser Ducati. However it was Jason O’Halloran who topped the combined timings at a cold and in the morning, wet Silverstone. Sitting just behind him in the timings was former team mate Dan Linfoot on the Santander Salt TAG Yamaha.

Scott Redding stayed in the top ten just ahead of Glenn Irwin.

With the weather set to be warm and dry across the Bank Holiday weekend, Silverstone should be in for a treat in the first major event of the season.
