In-form Ben Wilson is bidding to reel in the British Supersport Championship leaders at Donington Park this weekend.

Wilson, who bagged a win and a second place at the previous round at Cadwell Park, is eyeing more of the same at the round nine meet at the Leicestershire Track.

The Kirton ace currently holds third position, some 31 points behind second-placed Stuart Easton.

Wilson said: “I was really pleased with my results from Cadwell last week – but I will not be resting on my laurels. There is more work to be done at Donington, as I need to score as many points as possible to reel in the two leaders in the championship.”

The solitary qualifying session is scheduled for 11.05am on Saturday morning, with the results setting the grid for the 12-lap sprint race at 3.40pm.

Sunday’s feature race which will run over 18 laps at 3.40pm.
