Kagayama was to race at this event from a wildcard entry by Yoshimura Suzuki World Superbike. The team pulled out from entry today, as flights from Japan to Europe has been cancelled caused by the volcanic eruption in Iceland. Machines and parts are also been held up at Narita. The team has been trying their best since the eruption to secure a mean of transportation to Assen, but have pulled out today when they ran out of options.
Substitue entry for this race are now being discussed.
