Aaron Clarke and Tommy Philp head to Snetterton for a round of the British Supersport and Superstock 600 at the weekend, the draperRACING team looking to put some recent bumps behind them.

A battered and bruised Tommy Philp has been recovering from his heavy crash during Supersport qualifying for the Knockhill races, which put him in hospital under observation for a few hours.

He returned home to continue his recovery and is expected to be on the grid for the races at the Norfolk circuit this week.

He spent last weekend helping his family with their relocation to East Kirkby, and is now settled into his new life in Lincolnshire.

Kirton’s Aaron Clarke is hoping for better weather conditions this weekend so that he can continue his Superstock 600 campaign without his race being red flagged because of heavy rain.

After a race-long battle amongst a large group of riders he was poised to move up into a points scoring position at Knockhill when the race was stopped leaving him just a whisper away from his goal.

He was hoping to get up into 11th or 12th position if the rain hadn’t arrived when it did.
