An innovative, open-class race with a potential of 44 riders will support this year's British MotoGP at Silverstone in June.
The Silverstone 200 will comprise two 100-kilometre races around the 3.6-mile GP circuit with machinery between 600cc and 1200cc eligible to take part. Being outside of the constraints of championship regulations means essentially its anything goes within the parameters of the bike capacity.
The event, which is being run by MSVR, will bring highly sought after track time open to teams and riders competing in British, National or International Championships at Superbike, Supersport or Superstock 1000 level.
"The races will be preceded by free practice and all important qualifying on Friday with the first 16 laps 100km race getting the start signal straight after GP activities on Saturday afternoon," said an MSVR spokesmole.
"As in BSB the fastest lap times recorded in leg 1 will set the grid for leg 2. The second 100km race will set off immediately after the GP races have been concluded on Sunday. As the race title implies the overall winner will receive the inaugural Silverstone 200 Trophy."
