WSS: British contingent swells Silverstone entry list

James Westmoreland and Billy McConnell add their names to the list of riders who will make one-off appearance in the World Supersport Championship round at Silverstone.
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.

Parkalgar Honda, meanwhile, will expand to run three bikes for its home event with Christian Iddon, having recently been dropped from his ride with SMT Honda in the British Superbike Championship, going up alongside Eugene Laverty and Miguel Praia.

Finally, Racedays Kawasaki will also submit an entry, although its rider is yet to be announced.

I reckon Jenny T has been improving alot recently and a front spot in BSS cup is not to be sniffed at. She did great in 125's and is fastest lady at the IOM TT, I'll certainly be cheering her on. She works on her own bikes doesn't ask for any consideration and races hard - go Jenny!

Jenny has every right to be at Silverstone....She has lapped the IOM at nearly 120 mph and has had good results in BSB,so we know she can ride a motorcycle.If the weather turns a bit wet as it is the UK round of the world championship she may even suprise a few riders as Jenny is always up there in the BSS when the sessions are wet/damp.Without a doubt she will be out of her depth and in deep water but she deserves a wildcard ride just for all the effort she puts into her racing.GO Jenny.enjoy the occassion.
