Four of the British stars present in this year's World Superbike Championship have been confirmed as attending the Goodwood Festival of Speed on July 2-4.

Title contender Leon Haslam will be present with his Alstare Suzuki, reigning British Superbike champion Leon Camier his factory Aprilia, double world champion James Toseland his Sterilgarda Yamaha and Tom Sykes his PBM Kawasaki.

The World Superbike Championship's predecessor, Formula 750, will also be an area of focus for this year's event.

Won by the late, great Barry Sheene in 1973, the series was extremely popular during the 1970s in both America and Europe. Expected are great machines such as the ex-Patrick Pons 1979 Yamaha 750 TZ Sonauto, the ex-Randy Mamola 1977 Yamaha TZ 750 and the Rouen-winning Triumph Trident of Ron Chandler.

In terms of grand prix racing, the Catalan Grand Prix on the same weekend means no contemporary MotoGP riders can attend, but machinery on display includes the ex-Phil Read 1974 MV Agusta 500/4, the Cagiva C591 of Eddie Lawson and ex-Loris Capirossi Ducati Desmosedici GP5.

Italian World Champions, including 15-time world champion Giacomo Agostini, will also be in attendance.
