Hawk Kawasaki have announced that John McGuinness will replace the injured Glen Richards for the next round of the Brtish Superbike championship, at Brands Hatch next weekend.

Hawk's #75 rider Richards sustained an unfortunate broken left forearm following an accident in the first race of the Thruxton round of BSB last weekend.

Hawk immediately stated that they would field two riders at the Brands GP circuit and have now revealed that Isle of Man TT legend McGuinness will ride alongside Scott Smart at the event.
