@ben I believe it's an open race for 600cc and above, so there's some supersport and superbike spec stuff put there. Could be interesting but can't see the 600s having much of a chance around somewhere like silverstone...

Why would PTR waste a chance to get crucial track time round Silverstone? They're running their WSS bikes no doubt. No wonder you're called Louth Looney.

I read they are using it as a test for the WSBK round but didnt Scassa get disqualifed from a race last year for riding at track before the last years round in Italy ??

Scassa did get a ban for testing at a track before the round. However the rule only covers testing. You are free to enter any properly sanctioned race meeting without any issues.
