Dixon secured both wins a fortnight ago at Oulton Park in the first of the three showdown rounds.

The RAF Regular and Reserves rider – who will move to the Moto 2 class in MotoGP World Championship next year riding for the Angel Neito team – needs to continue that form to reduce Leon Haslam's lead in the title chase.

Haslam knows the circuit well from his Grand Prix and World Superbike days and is no stranger to the podium there.

The sidecars are back in action, and with North Walsham's Jack Tritton competing in the British Kart Championship his place in the draperRacing's sidecar driven by Simon Gilbert has been taken by Irish passenger Eamon Mulholland. RAF man Michael Russell from King's Lynn races in the True Heroes Racing sidecar with Shaun Parker and in the Ducati TriOptions Cup.
