Bennetts withdraw from BSB

The British Superbike Championship is without a title sponsor with less than three months until the new season opens at Brands Hatch.

The motorcycle insurance company Bennetts has ended it's four year association with the series.

It's another indication of the problems facing motorsport in general with the global downturn beginning to really bite.

The news follows Ducati and Rizla Suzuki pulling the plug on their involvement in British Superbikes.

There has been no word from British Superbike organisers Motorsport Vision about Bennetts ending their sponsorship.
