The British Superbike Championship came to an end at the Brands Hatch circuit in Kent last weekend where the Forcefield riders had a mixed weekend of results with some having to put their Forcefield Body Armour to the test again with several of the Forcefield supported riders crashing at the super-fast first turn, Paddock Hill bend.

The first to go down was 2012 National Superstock 1000 Champion Keith Farmer, Keith had a huge highside at Paddock Hill during qualifying and despite landing heavily on his back walked away a little sore but able to ride in the race and take another stunning win.
Keith Farmer - "After having an awesome year and bringing the title home for my Rapid Solicitors PBM Kawasaki team and wearing Forcefield Body Armour, I had another big crash at Brands at Paddock Hill but thanks to Forcefield I walked away unscathed again, thanks all for providing me with great protection this season it's helped me massively."
In the Superbike class Tristan Palmer suffered a big crash during the British Superbike race and was another faller at Paddock Hill.
Tristan Palmer - "The Forcefield Back and Chest protectors did a fantastic job at Paddock Hill on Sunday, I suffered a high speed crash with a good impact to the gravel and also the fencing. Luckily the only injury I sustained from the weekend was a sore neck, it certainly did its job and thank everyone there for supporting me this season."
In the British Supersport Class, Christian Iddon was battling for a podium place in the second Supersport race on Sunday when a problem with a lever forced him to jump off at one of the fastest corners on the circuit.
Christian Iddon - "I've had some big crashes this year and that ranks well up there with one of the most scary ones. I had to jump off or I would of hit the barrier flat out and having to make that decision isn't the easiest I can tell you. Thankfully to Forcefield and despite the impact I took I walked away, stiff but that's all. I'd like to thank everyone at Forcefield for saving me from some big injuries this season."
British Superbike rider Barry Burrell had his best races of the season with a 6th, 4th and 5th in the three British Superbike races.
Barry Burrell - "It doesn't seem long ago where I had a huge high-side at Brands Hatch at the start of the season but to end the season with my best results of the year is a great feeling and nice going into the winter season on a high. I have to thank Forcefield and the fact they have saved me from any injuries this season, it's great kit, mega comfy and does the job it needs to do - thanks all."
