Witness the British Superbike grid pushing the limits of their machines with our full picture gallery from Croft.
The much anticipated British Superbike title shootout officially got underway over the weekend, with the six 'title fighters' going head-to-head for the first time at Croft.

It was an exciting weekend as the form book was turned on its head, Michael Laverty emerging as Tommy Hill's early challenger, HM Plant Honda struggling at the lower end of the top ten and Michael Rutter committing a rare mistake.

Naturally, there was plenty of action beyond the top six as the North Yorkshire circuit threw up plenty of thrills and spills, all of which has been caught on camera for your viewing pleasure.

So does Bridewell (46) ride an older-model Fireblade? Sure looks like it. The new one came out something like three years ago, I don't know crap about BSB, I may be wrong, but can someone explain that to me? Doesn't seem like a great way of finding success.
