BSB Brands Hatch GP - Race 3 Results

Haslam 2017

Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne secures his sixth British Superbike Championship in a dramatic final race of the season at Brands Hatch.

Title challenger Leon Haslam crashed out on lap six to leave Byrne only requiring a top fifteen finish to secure the title. 

The 2017 Champion said: “I’ve never defended a title before, this feels amazing, I can't believe we've done it!"

"I just tried to relax this weekend and enjoy riding my bike and it's paid off."

It was Josh Brookes who took the race victory, with Jason O’Halloran and James Ellison rounding out the podium. 

McAMS Yamaha’s Michael Laverty finished in fourth ahead of the 2017 Riders Cup champion Christian Iddon (fifth) and Peter Hickman (sixth).

Dan Linfoot, Shane Byrne, Bradley Ray and Richard Cooper rounded out the top ten.
