Although there aren’t any wildcards in the WorldSBK class at Donington, former full-time WorldSSP rider and current reigning Dickies British Supersport champion Jack Kennedy and wildcard teammate Brad Jones (Appleyard Macadam Integro) will join the list of full-time riders.

Kennedy has masses of experience in the WorldSSP class at Donington Park, finishing inside the top ten on all but one occasion (his debut race), with a best result of fifth coming the last time he raced there. For Brad Jones, he is making his first appearance in WorldSSP. He has been a regular victory challenger in British Supersport and could well find himself inside the top ten.

Three more young British hopefuls will seek to make a good impression at Donington Park, this time in WorldSSP300. With no full-time British riders in the class, all eyes will be on Kade Verwey and Luke Verwey (Team XG Racing), as well as on Trystan Finocchiaro (Transmec KTM Racing Junior Team).

Kade leads the Junior British Supersport championship after another win at KNockhill. Meanwhile, Finocchiaro is second in the championship and also a recent winner.

On the weekend schedule is also a brace of British Talent Cup races on Saturday and Sunday, and to round up the Sunday action the Pirelli National Superstock boys will be putting on a show, so expect some serious paint swapping at 5pm.
