WSS: Quarmby set for belated debut

Having been sidelined by a rare bone condition for several weeks, Ronan Quarmby returns to action with a plum ride on the Ten Kate Honda.
Ronan Quarmby is looking forward to getting a belated World Supersport outing at this weekend's Silverstone round, just weeks after being diagnosed with a rare bone condition.

The South African teenager was participating in his home event at Kyalami as a wild-card when a scan on his left femur revealed the condition, forcing him to withdraw prior to the race.

Soon after, Quarmby underwent an operation that involved injecting cement that would plate the entire length of the femur.

Declared fully fit just two weeks ago, Quarmby will now his chance to compete aboard the Ten Kate Honda in place of the injured Michele Pirro.

“Since coming over from South Africa I have managed to spend a few days with the Ten Kate team in Holland and spent a really nice weekend with Gerrit and Ronald and their families. They have made me feel really welcome and looking round the workshop last week just blew my mind!

“I've been to Silverstone before when I was racing in the UK, but our race was cancelled because of the weather. I've been watching the MotoGP and Moto2 races online and the new layout looks awesome.

“Now I can't wait to get going and I think I can do well – I'm just no t sure yet how well. We'll know more after practice and qualifying on Friday!”
