The last time the BSB visited Brands Hatch it was Haslam and Byrne who dominated  with Byrne taking two commanding wins ahead of Haslam in second in both races, It would be hard to see past these two dominating the weekend again with both men on top of their form coming into the weekend Haslam winning both races last time out in Assen with Byrne right behind him. Byrne had open the championship gap up after the Donington race weekend but with the two wins in Assen Haslam closed it back up to 17 points. If this seasons races have been anything to go by this weekend should be a great weekend of racing between two of the top riders in any series in the world.
