With just a few weeks to go until the beginning of the 2022 ACU British Supermoto Championship, both riders and teams are in preparation for what is an anticipated repeat year of handlebar to handlebar full on action.
Last year’s championship went down to a thrilling last round conclusion at Cadwell Park where Jordan Bannon on his Dave Clarke Racing Husqvarna clinched his maiden title by just nine points from Jay Smith on his HGR Honda. Across the 2021 season there was no doubt that the sport of Supermoto provided onlookers with some of the best competitive and close racing to be seen in bikesport and for that reason we want to invite you to see for yourself first hand how thrilling the sport can be..!
The sport itself is recognised across the globe as a breeding ground for talent, it is also considered one of the best training tools for those competing in the top level of WSB, BSB and other disciplines as an off-season way to keep bike fit and explore the limits of grip, suspension, and braking ability. You will find many top riders have a supermoto lurking in their garage alongside all other types of bikes, from road race, Trials and motocross machines.
Here in the UK though there is a challenge to get the sport recognised, especially with spectators and given the fact that on many occasions’ top riders from BSB, Isle of Man TT and other series’ join the paddock this is not reflected in the numbers on the sideline watching. Something we are encouraging the bikesport fraternity to join us on a quest to spread the word and support the 2022 ACU British Supermoto Championship. We can guarantee, once you attend one of the meetings you will be hooked, not only buy the on-track action, moreover how close you can get to the riders and teams in the paddock.
Given the very low fees for spectators to enter most, if not all venues covered by the championship (some free, others less than £10) the comparison with weighted ‘action v spectator fee’ is something we can’t emphasise enough.
