ITV will continue to screen the British Superbike Championship into 2010 after securing the television rights for another season.

An extension of the current agreement, one-hour highlight programmes from each of the twelve BSB events will be screened on ITV4 on the Wednesday after each race weekend before being repeated on a Saturday afternoon..

We are certainly looking forward to broadcasting a new season of fierce competition."
