2013 is proving to be a golden year for British motorcycle grand prix riders, with Cal Crutchlow a regular podium contender in the premier MotoGP class and Scott Redding on top of the world in Moto2.

And after battling for glory in faraway circuits, Crutchlow, Redding and the other home riders can be sure of a raucous reception when they take to the track at Silverstone from August 30-Septmber 1.

Four podiums to date make Crutchlow easily the most successful British rider of the four-stroke MotoGP era. Cruelly denied the chance to ride in his home race in 2011, the Englishman was again injured in practice last season - then sensationally returned to steal the show by charging from last to sixth in the race.

While Crutchlow will be battling for his first ever British MotoGP rostrum - and the first by a UK rider since Jeremy McWilliams in 2000 - Marc VDS star Redding already has an enviable home record.

The Gloucestershire rider took his only 125cc win, as a rookie, in the 2008 British race (at Donington) and stood on the home podium again in 2009 (125cc) and 2012 (Moto2). Like Crutchlow, Redding has reached new grand prix heights this season, winning his first Moto2 races in addition to taking the world championship lead.

Soaking up the home support on their MotoGP class Silverstone debuts will be Crutchlow's Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team-mate Bradley Smith and Michael Laverty, of the British-based PBM team.

Smith will be aiming to beat a best-yet sixth place on the M1, having climbed the home podium twice in Moto2, while CRT rider Laverty will have his sights set firmly on further points with PBM's own motorcycle.

Joining Redding on the Moto2 grid will be rookie countrymen Danny Kent and Kyle Smith, with Danny Webb and John McPhee flying the flag in the Moto3 categories - with home wild-card entries set to boost British numbers even further.

87 euros for race day, with a TV nearby !! Sounds great value... 3 races too, those support races just filled up my day nicely anyway... Who wants to go to a race track to watch racing? I'm toying with paying 87 euro just to go and see the huge television, sounds amazing!! I still like to test my helmet knowledge though, silverstone and most other circuits in the uk have out the spectators so far away now we can't play the numbers game, we got too good at it.. I've got them beat though, I have put binoculars on my Christmas list... Thanks dorna, you are so clever!!!!
