In 2014, FIM Stock 1000 Cup

This season sees the 10th year of FIM Stock 1000cc Cup competition, and with a new look format and plenty of new faces the prospect of another exciting battle seems inevitable.

Superstock 1000cc racing began in the late 1990’s and initially ran as a European championship before gaining FIM status in 2005.

British riders dominated the first three years with Karl Harris and James Ellison taking the honours. Since then 7 Italians, a Belgian, an Australian and a Frenchman have been victorious with Sylvain Barrier (the champion in 2012 and 2013) being the only rider since Ellison to defend his crown.

In terms of machinery there has been a variety of manufacturers claim the title, but the absence of Kawasaki on the winners list is perhaps somewhat surprising.

Looking through the list of past winners, it is clear to see why this category proves to be so popular with no less than 5 former champions racing in the 2014 World Superbike championship.
