Smiths Gloucester to wild-card at Donington

Glen Richards, Billy McConnell and Luke Mossey will wild-card at Donington Park aboard their Smiths Gloucester Triumph Daytona 675s.
British Supersport Championship front runners Smiths Gloucester Triumph are set to go up against its world championship counterparts at Donington Park this weekend.

The team currently enters a trio of Daytona 675s for Glen Richards, Billy McConnell and Luke Mossey in the British series and all three will get a chance to shine alongside the likes of Sam Lowes, Kenan Sofuoglu and Fabien Foret at their local circuit this weekend.

Smiths Gloucester Triumph come to Donington Park following a successful British Supersport weekend at Oulton Park which saw 2008 BSS champion Richards notch up his second win of the season, while Australian counterpart McConnell has also been victorious this year.

In addition to the British trio, Raffaele de Rosa gets a second outing on a third Lorini Honda following a top ten turn on his debut at Monza, while Austrian racer David Linortner will also be present to bolster the grid to 35 riders.
