Dean Ellison suffered a nightmare weekend at Brands Hatch, his bad luck beginning as early on Friday when his D&B Ducati blew two engines in the practice session - effectively ruling him out of the event.

Spare parts for Ellison's four-year-old Ducati 996 didn't arrive in time for Brands, and both he and the D&B team have now decided to miss Rockingham on July 6, while they regroup and come back more determined than ever.

Meanwhile, although not racing at Brands, Ellison paid a visit to Fred Clarke in the commentary box for both races. Giving a rider's view of the fantastic racing between Shane 'Shakey' Byrne and former British Superbike Champion John Reynolds.
