Hopkins set for Brands Hatch appearance

John Hopkins, whose family all hail from the British Isles, will be in attendance this weekend at Brands Hatch for the final race of the British Superbike season.

The Rizla Suzuki rider will have the chance to see Gregorio Lavilla defend his one point lead over Ryuichi Kiyonari, eight points clear of Leon Haslam, at the historic circuit.

Guest of honour Hopkins will accompany the Rizla Suzuki Superbike team at the event. The MotoGP rider will also give a demonstration onboard the GSV-R on both Saturday and Sunday.

"I'm really eager to be there, it's a big thing for a MotoGP bike to be on the track at Brands Hatch and I'm delighted to be the one riding it," said Hopkins. "It's important to show the new fans how impressive the MotoGP machines are. It's also a great opportunity for me to reacquaint myself with some old friends, so it'll be a good day. I want to put on a show for all the people who come, so that they support the future of MotoGP."
