The Bennetts BSB Integro Summer Triple Crown will comprise of two races at three rounds – Brands Hatch Grand Prix (June 14/15/16), Knockhill (June 28/29/30) and Snetterton 300 (July 19/20/21), totalling six races.
Bennetts BSB remains one of the most fiercely-fought motorsport series in the world continuing to assert itself as the UK’s premier motorsport championship; with the closest finish in 2018 just 0.040s at Snetterton, the circuit that will conclude the inaugural Integro Summer Triple Crown.
The new competition will add another dimension of rivalry to the Championship in partnership with Integro, a leading global commercial insurance brokerage, who are specialists in sport and entertainment insurance.
The stakes are high! If a rider reigns supreme and scores victories in all six of the races during the Bennetts BSB Integro Summer Triple Crown, a £50,000 prize will be paid plus a £25,000 Triple Crown bonus for completing the circuit hat trick of wins.
2019 features an impressive permanent grid of 30 riders and the level of competition is fierce, and if a rider narrowly misses out on completing the full six race wins, a prize a £40,000 plus the £25,000 Triple Crown three circuit win bonus will be awarded for scoring victory at five of the six Integro Summer Triple Crown rounds.
The final chance to scoop a summer bonus is if a rider wins four of the six races; they will net £30,000, plus if they win a race at all three circuits they will also celebrate with the £25,000 Triple Crown top-up.
The riders will continue to score regular Championship and Podium Points during the three rounds in their bid to fight for a position in the top six Showdown at the end of the season.
