Kenny Noyes will return Suzuki to the World Supersport Championship field at Silverstone this weekend after picking up a wild-card for the British event.

The American has been enjoying a successful season in the Spanish-based CEV Moto2 Championship, having spent two years competing at world championship level, but will switch to Supersport machinery for the British round after penning a deal with WK Hampshire Racing.

Marking his debut in the 600cc category, Noyes - who is also designated as the Pramac Ducati MotoGP reserve rider - will compete on a Suzuki GSX-R600, marking only the second time the bike has appeared in the WSS field this season after wild-card competitor Stuart Voskamp finished tenth at Assen earlier in the year.
