Silverstone race circuit in Northamptonshire is making its final preparations ahead of this year's British MotoGP.

The British Grand Prix takes place over the weekend of 29-31 August.

Coventry's Cal Crutchlow, racing for Ducati, is among the British riders hoping to give the home fans something to cheer about.

So the time of the season has come, where I get to compete in front of my home fans at the Silverstone MotoGP. I really like this circuit and am hoping to have a good result at the race this year. I have had some of my most euphoric results here too! Win, lose or not race the crowd has always been fantastic to me and I look forward to that again. Competing in front of my home crowd is always special and the support and energy they give me definitely pushes me even harder. I will once again give my all and I hope to give the British fans something to cheer about.
