Aaron Clarke and Tommy Philp head to Silverstone at the weekend for their debut in the Supersport and Superstock 600 championships for their new team, Draper Racing.

Both riders were at Donington last week to take part in the British Superbike test day where they made final preparations to their respective bikes prior to the first race of the season.

Kirton rider Clarke has switched machinery to Yamaha this year and is posting times faster than ever before.

He is happy with the set-up and is anxious to get his season under way.

Clarke said: “I have settled well to the new Yamaha and have made some big steps forward while testing.

“This will be my third season in the Superstock 600 class and I am setting my sights on some good results this year.

“I have to thank Drapervent for their input this year and also Tommy and Bill Philp for their help.”

Philp is campaigning the British Supersport championship this season after moving house to East Kirkby.

British Supersport Championship – Friday free practice 9.35am and 2pm; Saturday qualifying 11am, 10-lap Sprint race 5.15pm; Sunday warm-up 10.10am, 12-lap Feature race 4.15pm.
