NORTH boys Graeme Gowland and Barry Burrell are looking good for a great potential battle in tomorrow's two Mirror.co.uk BSB-Evo races at Thruxton.
Gowland of Allendale, Northumberland, arrived back with the WFR Honda squad this weekend after missing the first three rounds after breaking his wrist in the first race of the year at Brands Hatch.
And now he is keen to make up for lost time, and has been a consistent top three Evo runner since he jumped back on board yesterday morning.

TOMMY Hill rode through the pain and put his Swan Yamaha in top spot after free practice at the team's local track ahead of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship at Croft.

And in true Tommy style he proved that he could.
LOCAL Evo hero Graeme Gowland has been forced to withdraw from this weekend's round at Croft Circuit.
The Allendale rider had hoped to make his comeback this weekend after breaking his wrist in a crash in the first race of the season at Brands Hatch.
But this afternoon he was devastated to have to pull out of his home round.
TEENAGE rookie Chrissy Rouse is gunning for a top ten finish this weekend at his home round of the Sunoco British 125GP Championship.

Having raced at the North Yorkshire circuit as a pre-season warm-up in the NEMCRC event in March when he finished third, he is confident he can use his knowledge of the track to his advantage this weekend.
