A number of familiar faces are to bolster the Silverstone round of the World Supersport Championship, with British Supersport title contenders Sam Lowes and James Westmoreland taking up two of the nine wild-cards handed out.

With Lowes having already confirmed his attendance on the GNS Honda, he will be joined by BSS adversaries Westmoreland and Billy McConnell on the CAME Yamaha, while Sam's brother Alex Lowes will also be present on the Seton Yamaha he has raced part-time in the British series.

Additionally, Jenny Tinmouth, who has been a front runner in the BSS Cup series this year, will make an appearance on her eponymous Honda, while Max Hunt and David Jones will respectively ride a Honda and Triumph.
