Kirton rider Aaron Clarke will return to Oulton Park for the second visit of the year at the weekend - and will be seeking a strong finish to edge nearer to a point scoring position.

He finished the last race at Cadwell in 19th place and will be hoping to replicate this or even go one step further at Oulton.

Clarke has been steadily making progress throughout the year in the National Superstock 600 class, completing every race in a better position each time and has now broken into the top 20.

The weekend kicks off with free practice at 9am on Saturday, followed in the afternoon by first qualifying at 1.20pm.

The final qualifying session is on Saturday at 10.35am and positions in this will set the starting grid.

Because there can be no track action at Oulton Park on Sunday until noon, Clarke will have an extra free practice session on Saturday at 5.15pm, which is classed as a warm up for the race on Sunday.

The 12-lap race is the last on the programme and is set to start at 5.20pm.
