RAF Regular and Reserve Kawasaki rider Jake Dixon gets his last chance to make it into the final showdown when the British Superbike Championship heads to Silverstone this weekend.
Dixon, who had a podium and a crash at Cadwell Park, is five points behind Luke Mossey, who returns after his Thruxton crash, but this is a triple header so the ball is firmly in Dixon's court.
Bowthorpe's Morello Racing hope their 25-point lead in the Superstock 1000 championship can be extended with another win for Danny Buchan on the Morello Racing Kawasaki. Main challenger Richard Cooper will not give up without a fight and there is still a mathematical chance of Michael Rutter taking the title. Buchan's team-mate Fraser Rogers is seventh, 180 points behind, but could still move up.
Thetford's Ryan Vickers is eighth in the Superstock 600 class in his first season at this level and with only three races left could still make the top six in a class which includes Norwich's Grant Newstead.
