Both draperRACING riders Aaron Clarke and Tommy Philp will contest the next round of their respective championships on home tarmac at Cadwell Park this weekend.

Philp will be riding in the two British Supersport races at the Lincolnshire Wolds circuit and was at the track last week for a test.

Despite the poor weather conditions, he was able to find a good wet set-up so if it is raining he will be well prepared.

He was able to iron out some niggling problems with the Yamaha and is confident he will be on the case when the riders take to the track for free practice.

Clarke is also relishing the chance to ride at his local circuit where last year he recorded a strong seventh place and he will be seeking to replicate that on Sunday.

He races in the Pirelli National Superstock 600 class – improving his results and lap times with every outing.

This is his first full season on the ex-Peter Hickman Kawasaki and he is beginning to make a move forward.
