Having been called into the factory-backed PBM Kawasaki team on home soil at Miller Motorsports Park, Jamie Hacking will get more chances to impress after confirmation that he will continue to sub for Makoto Tamada for two more events.

Tamada suffered a broken wrist at Monza, with Hacking called up to replace the Japanese rider for his home event on the calendar.

The AMA Daytona SportBike Championship rider secured the best result for the team in some 44 races in Utah with a seventh place finish in race one and, with no clashes in his regular ride, will now also take part in the events at Misano and Donington Park later this month.

The latter is set to be something of a second 'home' race for Hacking, who was born in the UK before his family emigrated to the USA at an early age.

The decision to bring Hacking in for two more races will give Tamada more time to recover before the official WSBK test at Monza in mid-July and the Brno race weekend at the end of next month.
