The Kirton-based ACR Kawasaki team is back down to one rider after Norfolk’s Charlie King left by mutual consent.

This leaves Aaron Clarke as the solitary rider in the team for this weekend’s action at Brands Hatch in the seventh round of the National Superstock 600 championship.

Clarke, from Kirton, didn’t make the long trip up to Knockhill for round five, but he has taken in a couple of track days to maintain his race fitness ahead of the Brands Hatch round.

He will be hoping to record his first points finish at the Kent circuit this weekend and is ready for the challenge ahead.

The weekend begins with free practice on Friday morning at 9am, followed by the first of two qualifying sessions at 1.25pm with final qualifying on Saturday at 12.30pm.

There is a short 10-minute warm up on Sunday at 9.55am to make final preparations for the start of the 14-lap race which is set for a start at 2.15pm.
