BSB at Oulton Park

Home » Newsroom » BSB at Oulton Park

This Friday, 15th September, sees the British Superbike Championship descend on Oulton Park for another hectic weekend of racing.

As well as being a particularly scenic circuit, Oulton Park is arguably the best circuit to spectate at.
And it's right on our doorstep.

This weekend sees the start of a critical part of the season for the BSB, with the first "Showdown" round. From now on the championship can only be won by one of the top 6 riders.

It's almost like resetting the points, so that the championship remains very competitive from now until the last race of the season, instead of having a runaway winner that makes the last few rounds a non-event.

It always provides a bit more interest when someone from the local area is taking part and we actually have a very talented young rider competing in the Supersport category, Joe Francis.

Joe is a Chester lad and is currently in a very respectable 9th place out of 31 in this category.

In June 1991 villagers refused to be downhearted by what was described as "appalling weather" and hence helped to still raise £1,500 at the 20th Tarvin Carnival. Despite what at time amounted to torrential rain the show went on with the then traditional parade of floats round the village, with the first prize going to the Tarvin Primary School. Again in those days, there was the...
