SO.....the MCE Insurance British Superbike season is over, and what a year it's been.
I don't think I've ever seen such an exciting and dramatic climax to a season as the one we witnessed at Brands Hatch on Sunday afternoon.

CHRIS Burns will this weekend join the Metzeler National Superstock Championship as the series enters its penultimate round at Silverstone.
And the 29-year-old will share the tarmac with his younger brother Joe, 17, as the pair face each other on the track for the first time.
Other than sharing the odd trackday in previous seasons, the Geordie duo have never squared-off in a race, and tensions will no doubt run high as they each battle to better each other.
