The 2024 British Superbike Championship Support class line-up has been unveiled

For the 2024 British Superbike season there will be a change in the Support classes that will run throughout the weekend alongside the Superbike class.

Bennetts British Superbike Championship series organisers, MSVR announced the complete line-up of support classes that will feature in the 2024 season, the announcement features the introduction of two new classes for 2024, which are aimed at the development and progression of young riders in the sport.

The new lineup that has been revealed will also see the removal of two current classes to make way for the two new classes that are being added to the Championship.


Here is what MSVR have announced for the current classes in the Bennetts British Superbike paddock:

Quattro Group British Supersport Championship:

"For 2025, the class will fully adopt Supersport “Next Generation” technical regulations, with the expected launch of further eligible machine models. The use of “kit” electronics will cease at the end of the 2024 season. This year’s Pirelli Junior Superstock Championship will also be a pathway to the BSS Cup in 2024."

Quattro Group British GP2 Championship:

"There will be a further review for the remainder of the 2023 season to ascertain viability for 2024 and beyond. The Promoter does recognise the benefits of a middleweight prototype class, but further teams’ commitment to the class is a priority to confirm."

Pirelli National Superstock Championship:

"Series Organisers are continuing a review of technical regulations to balance machine models where required. There will also be a review of tyre material standard."

R&G British Talent Cup:

"Despite various other Dorna promoted Talent Championships moving to Pirelli tyres, the BTC remains under contractual supply from Dunlop tyres."

ABK Beer 0% BMW Motorrad F 900 R Cup:

"Combined rider and machine weight to be implemented with immediate effect."

Pirelli National Junior Superstock Championship:

"The Pirelli National Junior Superstock Championship will not continue into 2024 as the class is confined to two manufacturers without the realistic option of more and the inability to operate a balance of performance formula, as in BSS. Current machines/teams can transition into the BSS Cup (or main BSS Championship). All national and regional clubs will maintain a 600cc class."

HEL Performance British Junior Supersport Championship:

"The Junior Supersport class will not continue into 2024 - as a defacto one make series already, the Promoter has defined with Kawasaki UK a replacement machine running to tight financial and technical parameters. All national and regional clubs will maintain a class that will cater for current Junior Supersport machines."

With the National Junior Superstock and Junior Supersport classes ceasing to exist after the 2023 season it will open the way for two new classes to enter the Championship. These classes will be the 'Pirelli National Sportbike Championship' and the 'Kawasaki British Superteen Championship'.


Pirelli National Sportbike Championship:

"New for the 2024 season, eligible machines include the Yamaha R7, Aprilia RS660, Kawasaki Ninja 650, Honda Hornet 750 as well as others believed to be entering the sector. Machines will run on Mektronic ECU platform with BoP formula to manage model parity and slick tyres. Rider eligibility is a minimum age of 16 years old on 1st March 2024."

Kawasaki British Superteen Championship:

"In association with Kawasaki UK a high level promoted championship with manufacturer presence and support and importantly contained budget and technical controls. The machine to be used is the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-4RR which will offer a higher standard of competition material. Rider eligibility is a minimum age of 15 years old on 1st April 2024 and a maximum of 20 years old on 1st April 2024. Riders must have a minimum of a Clubman licence."
