The final British Superbike race of the season took place at Brands Hatch and despite the changing weather conditions it was a successful end to the season. The Forcefield supported riders not only recorded 5 podium positions but Luke Hedger finished off  an impressive season by taking the Pirelli National Superstock 600 championship.

Luke became the 2013 Champion after riding a very mature race finishing in 8th place in the race which was enough to seal the title. After stepping up from becoming the Motostar British Champion in 2012 the youngster settled in well with the Gearlink Team and was rewarded with the Championship at Brands Hatch.
Luke Hedger - "The Forcefield kit is amazing and the support that Forcefield has given me this year is great, thanks so much and I'm glad I was able to return to all my sponsors a Championship title."
Adam Jenkinson has had a tricky few rounds and his team finally found the problem coming into the final round, sadly he was unable to catch up in the points table despite rounding the season off with a win he finished runner up in the National Superstock 1000 Championship.
Adam Jenkinson - "I managed to take the race win but lost out on the Championship title by four points. Once again I've loved being a part of the Forcefield sponsored riders and their kit is second to none, everything they have done for me over the last few years and also saved me from some big injuries over the last two seasons and I can't thank them enough for that."
Ben Wilson who has been one of the top Forcefield supported riders this season in the British Supersport class had a huge crash on Saturday during qualifying as he exited the final corner.
Ben Wilson - "I must say a huge thank you to Forcefield, thankfully I've not had to test the kit out much in the last two years but I had a massive crash on Saturday morning when my bike lost grip, I was thrown over the top and landed on my back. I hit the barrier and the bike hit me, I'd like to say I walked away but I broke my lower leg/top part of ankle but I had no back injuries and it took a fair whack. Thanks guys for supporting me for the last two seasons, the Forcefield kit has been great."
Bjorn Estment - "It was a fantastic end to the season with a Supersport Cup win and best overall finish in the Championship with 9th at the final round. As always the Forcefield Body Armour gave me the confidence to push on in the tricky conditions and do my best out on track and get the results that I managed to achieve. A massive thanks goes to the Appleyard Macadam team and NFB Financial services for their loyal support, help and guidance."
Mark Wilkinson - "I'd like to thank Forcefield for their support this year. The quality of their kit is amazing and I can't speak highly enough of it. Thank you!"
Josh Wainwright - "It was a pretty good year for me in the Superstock 1000 Championship and I've had a few big crashes but thankfully thanks to Forcefield always uninjured, which is a massive boost as a rider knowing you are safe in the kit you are wearing. I can't thank everyone at Forcefield enough for their continued support during 2013."
Richard Cooper - "I was able to gain two podiums in the Supersport class this weekend at Brands and it's always nice to end the season on a high note. I must thank Forcefield for all their support this season and glad I was able to re-pay them with a few podiums at the end of the season."
