British F1: WPS Racing Kawasaki teamsters join the Snetterton line-up
Against a backdrop of financial uncertainty which kept them out of the opening Cadwell Park round, the two outfits of Ricky Stevens and Ben Holland will line up on the grid at Snetterton.
With such a short season, it is vital for them to make an entrance now to get up to speed with the rest of the pack.
Former double champion Stevens is paired up with Jonny Allum the man who partnered Tommy Philp to the Bemsee Club title, so is therefore assured of good service from the sidecar.
Likewise, the vastly experienced Ben Holland is keen to get to grips with his new sidekick, long-time friend and familiar face around the paddock Jed Pilmoor-Brady.
Both crews are hoping against hope that the problems surrounding their abortive start to the season are now resolved, and they can pitch a full-scale onslaught at the title.
Scott Lawrie has withdrawn his entry so will be a non-starter, but twenty outfits make for a good and colourful grid, with the two latest additions expected to be right at the front.
