Lincolnshire's Steve Plater says he will be going all out for victory in round 11 of the British Supersport Championship at Silverstone on Sunday.

Going into the season's penultimate race, HM Plant Honda rider Plater leads the standings by seven points from MAP Raceways Yamaha's Billy McConnell.

Plater said: "I know what I have to do in the final two rounds at Silverstone and Oulton Park.

"I want to win both races but it's essential I finish ahead of McConnell."

Plater was runner-up to John Crawford in the 1998 British Supersport Championship after a countback of results.

They finished level on points and with the same number of victories but Crawford took the title by virtue of having claimed more second places during the season.

Boston's Ben Wilson on the Gearlink Kawasaki is fourth in the standings, five points behind James Westmoreland but 49 off Plater, with a maximum of 50 points up for grabs in the final two rounds.

In Superbikes, Glen Richards makes his comeback for HM Plant Honda after almost three months out with a broken leg.

Runaway series leader Leon Camier, riding for GSE Airwaves Yamaha, can clinch the title at Silverstone while Alford's Peter Hickman will hope to secure second place in the Superbike Cup on the Ultimate Racing Yamaha.
