Kirton rider Ben Wilson will contest the NW200 Supersport races with Gearlink Kawasaki – but he will not represent the team in the other races in Ireland or in the British Supersport Championship.
He will link up with his former team-mate Alastair Seeley in the NW200 Supersport race in the Northern Ireland races in May.
Wilson said: “I am looking forward to making my return to the NW200 this year – last year was a learning year and I really enjoyed the experience.
“I know the Gearlink Kawasaki team so well and I know that we can achieve some really strong results there.
“I secured an 11th and ninth last year and will be pushing hard to improve on those results this year.”
