2014 WSB cham­pion Syl­vain Guin­toli was at Cad­well Park this week­end as he be­gins to con­sider his op­tions for the 2017 sea­son. Hav­ing lost his seat in the PATA Yamaha WSB team to Dutch­man Michael van der Mark, Guin­toli ad­mit­ted to MCN he could be on the verge of a re­turn to the Bri­tish se­ries if no suit­able op­tions ap­pear on the world stage.

With Shaun Muir con­firm­ing Eu­gene Laverty and Lorenzo Savadori for his 2017 Aprilia WSB squad, reign­ing BSB cham­pion Josh Brookes has been left with­out a seat next sea­son. While the lat­est word is he could make a switch to race in the USA, a num­ber of team bosses are un­sur­pris­ingly in­ter­ested in bring­ing the Aussie back to BSB.

19-year-old Bradley Ray made an im­pres­sion at Cad­well Park this week­end as he took his maiden vic­tory in the Bri­tish Su­pers­port cham­pi­onship on Satur­day. The for­mer Red Bull Rook­ies con­tender proved un­beat­able at the Lin­colnshire track as made it a dou­ble in Sun­day’s fea­ture race.

Road rac­ing star Ian Hutchin­son reeled in BMW ri­val Tay­lor Macken­zie’s cham­pi­onship lead with a dom­i­nant vic­tory in the Su­per­stock 1000 race. Start­ing from pole po­si­tion, the Tyco BMW man stretched out a 2.373 sec­ond lead to beat Macken­zie and Keith Farmer.
