on Sunday 21 April French rider Loris Baz now returns to his main point of focus in 2013 - riding in the WSBK championship for the official Kawasaki Racing Team – in joyful and determined fashion. Baz left the challenging Motorland circuit after round two of SBK with a fifth and a sixth place finish in the bag, putting him eighth overall in the rankings at this early stage of the season.

Alex Lundh and Federico Sandi will run their Pedercini Team Ninja ZX-10Rs again in SBK, looking for more championship points and their first top ten race finishes.

With two rounds and four races of the 2013 FIM Superbike World Championship now completed the Circuit van Drenthe, close to Assen in the Netherlands, always provides a popular backdrop on the 15-round/30-race calendar. This classic ribbon of asphalt has been much modified and shortened from its origins as a road circuit and is now 4.542km long, featuring 6 right and 11 left hand corners.

There will be a round of both the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup and Superstock 600 European Championships at Assen, the second of the season. Jeremy Guarnoni (MRS Kawasaki) returns to action on his Ninja ZX-10R with the status of Bol D’Or race winner as he, like his friend and compatriot Loris Baz, was part of the victorious riding team that recently scored this famous win for Kawasaki.
