I think they will struggle to beat Simon Andrews and Julian DC. I suspect it is more a chance to see how they stack up against MSS and maybe to swap ideas and technology between the teams. I don't really know why they are doing it, but it's going to make for an even more interesting meeting.

No doubt an MSVR ploy 1) to put buns on seats as greed denied them a WSBK round and 2) to try and extend the championship to Oulton, coincidentally owned by MSVR. A GSE championship wrapped up at Silverstone is hardly good for ticket sales

There is also quite a gap between WSBK rounds so maybe they have done some work on the bikes since the Imola test and want to try them out in a race. Didn't Renegade do a similar thing back when Haga was riding for them in WSBK. The infamous Oulton Park round with the fireball on the warmup lap.

Not go a lot of time for Birdy, but fair play to him for giving these boys a chance to pedal round Brands.
Back in the day it was common to see riders racing in non championship events

Hope your right Ian S maybe to swap ideas and technology between the teams. The BSB guys I beleive run completely different suspension shocks etc etc etc tyres? and its obviously working in their bikes on their tracks. I read Broc Parkes has done well at Brands (on different manufacture)and looks like he has some friends and fans in the UK to cheer him on. He has been doing a good job developing the Kawasaki so good luck for this weekend WSB races and the BSB race meeting.

I would think that Birdy is hoping that he would get MSS to give his "WSBK stars " some pointers on how to ride the bike ,at least some of the Cup boys with be able to brag in the pub that they lapped a full factory spec WSBK Kawasaki afterwards .
