“Being able to announce a national television package to showcase all of the riders taking part in ASBK in 2015 is an integral part of this.

“This championship has continued to gather momentum and this is just another sign that things are on the up.

“And anyone who is unsure of what to expect from the ASBK this year and in the future can get in front of their television sets, or hit the record button to catch all of the action – starting on the 21st of March.”
