POLL: Who will win 2012 BSB Showdown?

Instead, it is Tommy Bridewell and Alex Lowes who will go through to contest the 2012 title, the former proving such a surprise that he wasn't even included in the pre-season poll having only secured his ride at the eleventh hour.

Though he hasn't made it onto the podium, exceptional consistency has kept him and newcomers Supersonic BMW static in the top five for almost the entire season, the youngster in turn ensuring that five manufacturers will be represented in the Showdown.

Lowes, meanwhile, can thank a strong late burst of form for his Showdown spot, the WFR Honda rider shrugging off a tricky start to the season – as well as the demons that hampered him towards the end of his breakthrough 2011 year – to come of age just in time. After a podium finish at Cadwell Park, Lowes could be a genuine outsider for the win.

With just three rounds and seven races to determine who will secure the 2012 BSB crown, we want to know who you will prevail come Sunday evening at Brands Hatch on 14th October…
