Motorcycle insurance specialist Bennetts kick-started its 2022 VIP British Superbike experiences with a unique go-karting event, where 50 Bennetts customers went head-to-head against a host of BSB riders.  

Chris Walker, Jason O’Halloran, Christian Iddon, Peter Hickman, Lee Jackson, Tom Neave, Chrissy Rouse, Bjorn Estement and John McGuinness all attended the hugely popular pre-season Bennetts BSB event held at Gridline Racing.

Alongside four heat races, a semi-final and grand finale to determine the fastest driver on the day, customers also got to mingle with the stars off-track to chat about all things racing and how their preparations are going for the start of the 2022 BSB season

For those that weren’t lucky enough to attend, here's just some of the highlights.

Speaking after the event, Bennetts British Superbike Series Director Stuart Higgs said, “I just can’t think of any other equivalent sport where you would get the opportunity to compete with your idols in this way – for example, you just wouldn’t be able to have a kick about with the England football team. This event has really set the stall out for VIP experiences in 2022, and I look forward to welcoming Bennetts customers and BikeSocial Members to each round this season.”

Bennetts customer and BikeSocial Member Darren, Oliver-Jones added, Bennetts rocks! The whole day was brilliant and the BSB riders were so friendly and open to chatting. Being a Bennetts customer isn’t just buying insurance cover it’s joining a family and having the chance to do some money can’t buy activities. No other insurance company comes close for cover, service and perks.”


This year will once again see Bennetts customers get the opportunity to get closer to the action at BSB races with over 4,800 experiences available! From exclusive grid walks and VIP hospitality to high-speed pillion and Safety Car laps. Bennetts customers will also be able to ride the track just after BSB riders have left the circuit at three of this year’s race weekends.
