Haslam takes 2018 BSB title

JG Speedfit Kawasaki's Leon Haslam is the 2018 British Superbike Champion after taking sixth place in Saturday's opening race of round 12 at Brands Hatch, Kent.

“That was the longest race ever! I wanted the boys in front to push on but when I caught Hicky, I could see that Jake wasn’t leading so settled into sixth place as I knew I could clinch the title in that position.

“It was a long 20 laps and it’s been a while coming but it’s been a fantastic year and the team have been faultless. It’s not my style to finish in sixth place but I did what I needed to do to get the job done and 14 wins shows what a great year we’ve had.

“It’s a huge weight off my shoulders and I’m delighted, so a big thanks to everyone.”
