Smiths Triumph to wild-card, Quarmby returns

Glen Richards and Billy McConnell will once again go up against the world, while Ronan Quarmby returns aboard a Honda.
British Supersport front runners Smiths Triumph are to once again go up against their international rivals this weekend after being granted a wild-card for the Silverstone round of the World Supersport Championship

The factory-supported team has already taken on its WSS counterparts this season with an outing at Donington Park, Glen Richards scoring a tenth place finish, while fellow Australian Billy McConnell came home in 19th.

In addition to the local wild-cards, Ronan Quarmby will make a return to WSS competition this weekend as the latest rider for ProRace Honda.

The South African, a podium winner for PTR Honda last season, has been absent from motorcycling competition this year after deciding to pursue other interests, but makes a return at Silverstone – where he finished fourth in 2012 - with the Czech-based team in place of the still-injured Gabor Talmacsi.
