Following the conclusion of the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike championship, all eyes will switch to preparations for the 2020 season as the grid continues to take shape.

With champion Scott Redding heading to the World Superbike championship joining the factory Aruba.it Racing Ducati squad, Christian Iddon has taken up his spot at the reigning champions’ Paul Bird Motorsport Ducati alongside Josh Brookes who stays for 2020.

A number of teams have already announced 2020 BSB rider line-ups including Oxford Racing Ducati, FS-3 Racing Kawasaki, McAMS Yamaha, Smiths Racing BMW, Santander Salt TAG Yamaha and PR Racing BMW while OMG Racing BMW have secured half of its line-up by retaining Luke Mossey.

FS-3 Racing Kawasaki has gained official factory team status starting from next year, while both Yamaha teams will debut the new YZF-R1 which is set to be released this winter. OMG Racing will also have a busy off-season after switching manufacturers from Suzuki to BMW.

Honda Racing has retained Andrew Irwin and partnered him up with older brother Glenn Irwin.

But with many teams still to finalise its 2020 plans, next year’s BSB grid is set to gather pace over the winter ahead of pre-season testing.

The 2020 BSB championship gets underway at Silverstone, using the National circuit layout, on 10-12 April to kick-off a 12-round campaign finishing with the familiar three-round Showdown taking place at Assen, Donington Park and Brands Hatch for the iconic three-race finale.
