    A number of British Superbike Championship riders are gearing-up to challenge the best Supermoto talent in the country on their home turf at the final round of the Vivaldi British Supermoto Championship at the Three Sisters Circuit in Wigan on the 4th December.

    While most of the major British bikesport series have now drawn to a close the Vivaldi British Supermoto Championship represents one of the last opportunities this year for top-flight racing with Superbike riders being drawn to the sports unique challenge of taking to dirt and tarmac on motocross bikes.

    Confirmed riders include multiple Isle of Man TT winner and Superbike regular John McGuiness. The gifted all-rounder has also tried his hand at Supermoto on a number of occasions in the past and is looking to push the British Championship regulars as hard as he can on a Honda in the SM2 class.

    Vivaldi Racing Superbike riders will also be out in force. Ben Wilson who has had a couple of top ten finishes this year will be riding in the SM1 class alongside team mate Ollie Bridewell who finished fifth in the Superstock championship with a number of podiums results. Superstock rider Aaron Zanotti will also be taking part after a top 15 performance in the 2005 championship.

    Another member of the Bridewell clan, Tommy who had a very successful season in the Virgin Mobile Cup where he finished third with four wins will be taking part in the SM2 class on a KTM. The British Supersport Championship is represented by seasoned campaigner Tom Tunstall who has considerable experience on a Supermoto machine.

    While Matt Winstanley has won the SM2 class with a round to spare it is still all to play for in SM1 and the SM4 class for Juniors. SM1 has seen spectacular racing all season with rivals Winstanley and Christian Iddon banging bars at almost every outing. Iddon has had the edge in the big bike class in most encounters but Winstanley has pushed him all the way losing out in the last race of the day at the recently held round at Rowrah by just seven thousandths of a second.

    Others to look out for are World Championship rider Sam Warren and Belgian regular Fred Fiorentino. Veteran Ady Smith has found some form recently with Danny Tollett, Andy Mitchell and Matt Gordon likely to figure in the final results.

    The format for the weekend is practice on Saturday the 3rd December from 10am with racing on Sunday 4th getting underway at 9.30am. Ticket prices are 10.00 for adults. The Three Sisters Circuit is located in Wigan, Lancashire with circuit details available at
