Loris Baz's star turn on his British Superbike Championship debut with Motorpoint Yamaha will be rewarded with another two outings to see out the season.

The Frenchman was drafted in as the replacement for the injured Andrew Pitt at Croft, Baz proceeding to impress by qualifying inside the top ten and finishing in seventh place. It would have been the team's best result of the season had Dan Linfoot not finished further up the road in fifth.

Although he crashed out of the second race, Baz has seemingly done enough to warrant a chance to ride the Yamaha R1 during the final two events at Silverstone and Oulton Park.

Baz has already raced at Silverstone this season courtesy of his FIM Superstock 1000 commitments - the 17-year-old finishing sixth -, though the decision to focus on BSB will mean he has to curtail his involvement in the European championship as Silverstone clashes with Imola.
