Ryuichi Kiyonari has been confirmed fit enough to return to the MCE British Superbike championship for Buildbase BMW this weekend at Silverstone after recovering from an injury suffered during flat track crash.

The three-time BSB champion was forced to sit out round ten at Assen after sustaining an injury during a flat track accident but has been declared fit to compete at the Northamptonshire circuit.

Despite missing out on the Showdown, Kiyonari is still looking to fightback at the front and has fond memories of Silverstone after taking a dominant victory at Silverstone in 2014.

"I cannot wait to get back out on my bike this weekend," Kiyonari said. "I really like Silverstone, last year fighting with Shakey was so much fun. I hope we can have another race like that but it will be hard as we have had a difficult season. I want to show I am still fast and that I can still win."

The Japanese rider has endured a difficult 2015 campaign after a promising start when taking pole position in the season opener at Donington Park. Since then he has struggled to convert his pace during the races with a best result of three fourth-place finishes.
