Finaler Onboard Knaller: Brands Hatch British Superbike , final run 2107 (MCE BSB) - Highlights
Josh Brookes was victorious in the final MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship race of the season, but there was high drama all the way to the finish as standings leader Leon Haslam crashed out of contention, as Shane 'Shakey' Byrne successfully defended the title for the first time.
On the opening lap James Ellison led the pack from Christian Iddon and Michael Laverty with Brookes, Byrne and Haslam in close contention. Iddon took the lead for Tyco BMW on the second lap briefly at Paddock Hill Bend but then Ellison reclaimed the position at Druids.
The pair swapped places at the front of the field with Michael Laverty moving into third place, but Brookes was on the attack and he soon moved to second by the sixth lap with some determined moves as he fought until the bitter end for a second title.
There was disaster for Haslam though on lap six when he suffered brake failure on the JG Speedfit Kawasaki and was forced to jump off at 172mph at Hawthorns, he sustained a broken left ankle, right wrist and right thumb. He returned to the grid for the championship celebrations to congratulate Byrne on his title victory before heading to the medical centre.
