Factory KTM riders Jamie Dobb, Joel Smets and Pit Beirer have been confirmed for the Hawkstone International on Sunday March 2nd, 2003.

The race will mark Beirer's first visit to the event - held at the world famous former British GP circuit, while home hero Dobb will doubtless have the fanatical crowd firmly behind him.

2003 will see a slight change to the usual format as there will be qualifying as per the British Championship.
