The second round of the 2021 British Superbike Championship (BSB) at Knockhill will be shown on free-to-air television this weekend, making it the perfect build up to the Euro 2020 final when England takes on Italy 

OK, so we may be a tad premature with this on a Wednesday morning but we’re choosing to remain positive… and we reserve the right to edit this later on!

If you like your motorcycle racing gnarly and your football prestigious, then you’re in for a treat on Saturday and Sunday with Quest TV preparing to show live coverage of BSB across both days, which will include all three races.

Two hours of live programming will take place on Saturday between 16.00 - 18.00 for Race 1 before a mammoth five-hour programme on Sunday between 13.00 - 18.00 that takes in Races 1 and 2, plus a selection of support events.

Normally BSB is hidden behind a paywall on Eurosport, but the deal with Quest TV will see it show live programming for the series throughout July, including Round 3 at Brands Hatch and Round 4 at Thruxton.

Full crowds at BSB to be allowed from Round 3 onwards

Meanwhile, series organisers MSV have welcomed the confirmation that large gathering lockdown measures will be eased from 19 July. The start of the 2021 BSB season was delayed to June when the deadline was originally schedule, but a delay to easing lockdown meant the opening two events would be restricted to 4,000 spectators as per the law.

However, from Round 3 at Brands Hatch this will be eased to allow full crowds at events.

“The past 18 months have been incredibly difficult for every constituent of the championship, and we have done everything possible to keep the championship operational to the highest standard possible,” said series director Stuart Higgs. 

“The recent first round at Oulton Park was a great taste of things to come and we can’t wait to see the full spectacle of the championship return.

“We understand that there will be many questions and we hope to answer these in full, on or around 12 July, when more detail is made available by the government.  In the meantime, we will liaise with our circuit partners to plan in detail for the restoration of unrestricted spectator attendance. 

“Finally, I’d like to thank all of our teams, riders, commercial, organisation and media partners and of course the amazing fans of the championship who are set fair to come home!"
