PBM Get Dialled In At Croft

Seven times and defending British Superbike champions Paul Bird Motorsport have blown off the COVID-19 induced cobwebs this week following news that the Bennetts British Superbike Championship is set to start in August.

Former champion Josh Brookes and teammate Christian Iddon followed up a shakedown at Teesside Motorsport Park last week with a fully blown exclusive test at Croft Circuit earlier this week for the Penrith-based squad who won the title with MotoGP exile Scott Redding last year.

Australian Brookes finished a close runner up after winning ten races, including a hat-trick at the final round, so aims to go one better when the series gets underway at Donington Park over the weekend of August 7/8/9th. 

Joining him in Paul Bird’s team is new recruit Christian Iddon who is now based in the North East and will have an identical factory-supported 1000cc VisionTrack Ducati Panigale V4 R at his disposal for the proposed six-round series.

Brookes was BSB champion in 2015 and is the third most successful rider in the history of the series winning 49 races so far. Iddon, meanwhile, was the 2019 Rider’s Cup champion despite having suffered a broken leg during the year.

Both riders enjoyed a very productive day at Croft where they spent time developing the new bikes having been inactive following the worldwide shutdown of sport in March, just as the 2020 season was about to start.
