Aaron Clarke and Tommy Philp of draperRACING head to Snetterton for a round of the British Supersport and Superstock 600 at the weekend.

A battered and bruised Philp has been recovering from his heavy crash during qualifying for the Knockhill races which put him in hospital under observation for a few hours.

He returned home to continue his recovery and is expected to be on the grid at the Norfolk circuit.

He spent last weekend helping his family with their relocation to East Kirkby and is now settled into his new life in Lincolnshire.

Kirton rider Clarke is hoping for better weather conditions so that he can continue his campaign without his race being red-flagged because of heavy rain.

After a race-long battle among a large group of riders, he was poised to move up into a points-scoring position at Knockhill when the race was stopped, leaving him just a whisker away from his goal.

He was hoping to get up into 11th or 12th position if the rain hadn’t arrived when it did.
