Tommy Philp will be in action in Assen as draperRACING head to the Netherlands for the penultimate round of the British Supersport championship.

Philp, from East Kirkby, will contest two races, the 12-lap Sprint race on Saturday and the 15-lap Feature race on Sunday.

Superstock 600 rider Aaron Clarke, from Kirton, will accompany the team to Assen to assist Tommy, but he does not have a race this weekend.

Clarke’s championship had a round at the World Superbike championship at Donington Park earlier in the year as the series does not contest a race at Assen.

Philp will be seeking two points finishes at the Cathedral of Speed to boost his points tally as we near the end of the season.

The weekend begins with two free practice sessions on Friday at 9.35am and 2.30pm to prepare the bike for the solitary qualifying session that takes place on Saturday at 10.55am.

The results from qualifying set the grid for the 12-lap Sprint race that is scheduled for 3.40pm on Saturday.

There is a short warm-up on Sunday at 9.52am and the 15-lap Feature race is set for a start at 3.35pm.
