Vote for your BSB star of `08!

The 2008 Bennetts British Superbike Championship season produced non-stop action throughout the year and the strength of the field can be seen by the number of riders who will go on to the World stage next season.

At the end of the campaign, it's now time to reflect on who were the star performers of the season – and we want to know your views on who were the top riders from 2008.

By clicking the link below, you can see our shortlist of riders and give each a mark out of ten, with the highest scorer securing the honour of being your star of 2008.

We've given you a little bit of info on each rider in case you need your memory jogging, but here are a few people who might be worth considering:

Shane Byrne stormed to his second BSB title...
Leon Haslam shone in the final rounds to secure the runner-up slot...
Tom Sykes impressed on both the British and World stages to earn a plum WSBK ride...
James Ellison relaunched his career with Hydrex Honda to earn a ride with GSE...
John Laverty clinched the Daily Star Cup for privateer riders...

These are just a handful of the riders looking for your vote, so CLICK HERE and get voting!
