Back by popular demand, the Bennetts go-karting extravaganza will kick-start 2023’s VIP British Superbike experiences. Taking place on Friday 24th February at Gridline Lincoln, 60 Bennetts customers will have the opportunity to race head-to-head against a whole host of Bennetts BSB riders and legends!
After reaffirming their commitment to the Championship at the end of 2022, with the renewal of the title sponsorship (for the next three years), Bennetts endeavour to build on their 2022 triumph of getting more insurance customers and BikeSocial members closer to the Bennetts BSB action than ever before. The go-karting experience is set to start the season in style, as they look to break last year’s record of 11,000 BSB customer experiences.
For 2023, the karting day will follow a slightly different format. Each session will play host to ten different teams, comprising of a BSB star as the captain and three Bennetts customers/BikeSocial members. Teams of four will take on a two-hour-long endurance race, with each driver getting 30 minutes each of total drive time, in three separate stints. Before the race, each driver will get to practice and qualify, with the fastest qualifying time from each team being taken to determine the starting grid position.
The line-up of team captain’s is already looking strong, with Honda Racing UK riders John McGuinness, and Tom Neave confirmed, as well as Kawasaki’s Lee Jackson (who has already been practising). We’ll also have YouTube superstars, Storm Stacey and Lee Johnston and Chasin the Racin’s Dom Herbertson, who’ll be contesting the new BMW F 900 R Cup this season.
To be in with a chance of winning your place at 2023’s maiden event, direct insurance customers and BikeSocial members can register via the BikeSocial membership site here, with the competition open until Tuesday, 2nd February. New customers who insure via price comparison websites and riders who are not Bennetts insurance customers, can buy a BikeSocial membership for just £6 a month, or £60 for a 12-month subscription - which will enable you to not only enter this competition, but the whole of 2023’s incredible BSB experiences are up for grabs.
