Silverstone Superbike: TV Schedule

Motorcycle Racing on TV

The Silverstone Superbike race, Round 10 of the World Superbike Championship, will air on SPEED TV on Sunday, Aug. 1, with race 1 at 5 p.m. and race 2 at 6 p.m. (EST).

SPEED will also repeat the WSBK broadcasts on Tuesday, Aug. 3, at noon and 1 p.m., respectively, followed by the World Supersport race at 2 p.m.

Saturday World Superbike Superpole Report:

On Saturday, Cal Crutchlow took Superpole at the Silverstone Circuit. This is the fifth time this season that the Brit will start first on the grid, although he has yet to win a race.

Fastest behind Crutchlow were Hannspree Ten Kate Honda’s Jonathan Rea, Ducati Xerox’s Michel Fabrizo, P&G Aprilia’s Jakub Smrz and Suzuki Alstare’s Leon Haslam.

The World SBK series leader, Aprilia RSV4 rider Max Biaggi, will start in sixth.

World Superbike Silverstone Circuit Report:

The championship has been to Silverstone on six previous occasions, the most recent being in 2007, when only one race took place due to incessant rain that flooded the track before race two could get underway.

The Silverstone that World SBK returns to this year is a very different venue from previous versions, with massive investment in both a heavily modified circuit layout and infrastructure improvements resulting in a 5.902 km circuit, which owes a lot to the ex-airfield circuit’s original reputation as a fast and open racetrack, where speed is a key element.

World Superbike Points (after 9 rounds of 13): 1. Biaggi 352; 2. Haslam 284; 3. Rea 203; 4. Checa 189; 5. Haga 172; 6. Toseland 160. 7. Corser 149; 8. Fabrizio 147; 9. Camier 138; 10. Crutchlow 138. Manufacturers: 1. Aprilia 358; 2. Suzuki 305; 3. Ducati 276; 4. Honda 214; 5. Yamaha 206; 6. BMW 163; 7. Kawasaki 55.
