BSS: Iddon joins grid at Silverstone

British Supermoto champion Christian Iddon will make his return to the BSB paddock this weekend after agreeing a deal to contest the British Supersport round at Silverstone.

Iddon will join the GNS Racing team as he looks to continue the momentum from two recent World Supersport outings; which included scoring his first world championship points with twelfth place at the Nurburgring.

GNS Racing, formed at the end of 2009 by former Centurion Racing co-owner Gary Stubbington, currently leads the BSS championship standings with Sam Lowes.

“We've been taking to GNS for a while about possibly doing something together,” said Iddon. “They started the season with two riders but have only had Sam for the last few rounds, so we managed to agree a deal for Silverstone this weekend to take them back to a two-bike team.

“I've already competed on the Silverstone Arena layout this season in World Supersport, which will be an advantage for me when I hit the track in practice as I don't need to worry about learning the circuit. While others have done track days, I've done a race weekend - which I hope will help me.

“The bike is similar to the ones I have raced recently and the team has shown the job it can do, so I'm going into the weekend aiming to score some points and challenge for a place in the top ten.”

Iddon began the season riding a sorrymate.com Honda in BSB.

Wow check out all the Iddon knockers disagreeing with the positive comments above- what's the lad done? Think Supersport is maybe where Iddon should've gone first this season but perhaps a few decent rides with GNS will do him some good and stick 2 fingers up at his apparent knockers...

The SuperSport seems to suit him more than a SuperBike, he should get in the points maybe challenge for a top 10, then he can hopefully get a full-time ride BSS next season.
