Happy Leap Day!

We launch all-new 2012 World Superbike programme

We team up with Effenbert Liberty Racing in SBK

We are delighted to announce a complete new programme for the 2012 World Superbike Season & make some special introductory offers

SPECIAL OFFER 1: FREE UPGRADE to full Team Experience for your first purchase of a package with Paddock passes

SPECIAL OFFER 2: €100 discount if you purchase a Team Experience on its own in the month of March. (they are still more heavily discounted as part of a package however!)

See our new website: sbk.polepositiontravel.com

In our pilot SBK season in 2011 we were astonished at the incredible level of access and sheer fun we were able to deliver to customers. This is a real bike-lover's series, and we can't recommend an SBK weekend highly enough.

We are running packaged tours to ALL events; alternatively you can just buy passes from us. However we discount Paddock and Team Experiences 25-30% when sold with packages; VIP is 5% discounted)

All tours include 3 nights quality B&B accommodation, on-site 24 hr guides(usually speaking local language as well as English), Friday welcome drinks with special guest(s), transfers (although several hotels you can walk!), and your choice of Paddock Pass, SBK VIP Hospitality or Team Experience.

We join forces with Team Liberty

Team Effenbert Liberty Racing are THE party team in the paddock. They actually operate the Paddock Party (at many events!) and we will also be putting together some super off-track parties at some events (Brno, Moscow & San Marino for sure!)

With us and Liberty, you won't get any closer to the action without a career change!

Everyone on the Liberty Team Experience will have full access to the hospitality, complete garage and pit access, access to the PIT LANE (and some lucky folk every event will stand ON the STARTING GRID!), access to the VIP Enclosure at the parties, private photo shoot ON the bikes, our own hostesses (in addition to the Pole Position staff!), merchandise and much more!

Liberty runs 5 riders in SBK and 1000 STK - all speaking good English (well, Brett speaks Canadian!); and a very friendly lot. A lot of bikes for the buck! More on Liberty...

And for those of you who have joined us in the MotoGP paddock in 2011 you probably know the former LCR Honda manager Fabio Alberti. He is now the manager of Liberty Racing, and those who have experienced him before know he will move mountains to ensure you have the time of your life! (If you doubt this, check out his tough role of selecting umbrella girls...)

Flights and travel

How to get there? Ask us if you need advice. We can also book flights for you.

You know that flight costs vary by the minute so we aren't going to name a flight price now and then change it. We charge you the ACTUAL COST of the flight, and then add a modest service fee - or we just give you the flight details and you are free to book yourself! We can arrange local pickups and combine customers for taxi-pools, especially great for those more remote events (read: Aragon! Where our hotel is 15 mins from the track!)

Typical SBK Costs

SBK is fantastically good value for money. It is an especially great option for corporate or incentive travel - the luxury is up to the standards of MotoGP or even F1, the access to the pits and riders is unparalleled, and the costs are massively lower!

A full package weekend at lovely Portimao, Portugal for example:

3 night tour with 4/5* Beach Hotel, transfers, Portugese-speaking guide, opening reception with guest speaker. Price per person based on 2 sharing:

With Paddock pass: €540 / US$720 / £450
With Team Experience*: €740 / US$990 / £620
With SBK Hospitality: €825 / US$1100 / £690

*remember if it is your first trip this year and you are booking in March, you pay the Paddock pass package price!

We set base prices in GBP in UK events, USD in USA events, AUD is Australian events, and everything else in EUR. We can quote and take payment in any of these currencies. We are fully bonded under EU regulation.
