2015 British Supersport champion Luke Stapleford will fill in for the injured Billy McConnell at Silverstone for the Quattro Plant FS-3 Racing Kawasaki squad.

Stapleford made his BSB debut at Silverstone on the same race weekend he clinched his Supersort title two years ago and is set for a one-off appearance in the Northamptonshire circuit triple-header as McConnell recovers from injuries sustained at Thruxton.

"I'm really looking forward to getting another taste of a Superbike especially at Silverstone which is a circuit I really enjoy and haven't ridden for a couple of years now.

“With the long break in our current calendar it creates some good opportunities do some other events and I'd like to thanks the whole Quattro Plant FS3 Racing team for the opportunity and wish Billy McConnell a speedy recovery.

“I have some great memories of racing at Silverstone and hopefully I will be able to give the team a couple of strong finishes along with some more feedback to help them progress."
