BSB British GP2
GP2 2022 Season
Following two years of evaluation, prototype machines of a similar specification to those seen at World and European Championship level in the Moto2 category were formally accepted into the British Championship for the first time in 2018 and will continue in 2022.
The category, designated British GP2 allows for current Honda-powered Moto2 machinery that has been used in World or European Championship competition as well as new, independent constructor projects utilising any 600cc four cylinder or 675cc three cylinder engines to a technical specification very similar to Junior Superstock.
The Change To The Regulations
It was rumoured that BSB GP2 was about to have a review to allow more configurations of bikes into the class. This was expected to happen in 2020, however due to unforeseen global circumstances the plan was put on hold.
In 2021 BSB Race Director, Stuart Higgs asked KMC UK if they would like to compete in the last three rounds of the GP2 Championship as a wild card entry. This was to assess the performance against the current 600cc four-cylinder machines. It is fair to say that we jumped at the opportunity. With a bit of persuasion, we managed to convince ex European Superstock rider, Barry Burrell, out of retirement. The results were more than impressive, with a bike straight out of the box we achieved mid pack results highlighted with a 3rd place t Donington Park.
GO FOR 2022!
For 2022 BSB season the Krämer GP2-R will be allowed to run in GP2 category as a title contender. Krämer will offer competitors choosing the GP2-R full factory technical support. Special bike packages will also be available on request.
