Ben Wilson rounded off his British Supersport Championship season with finishes of seventh and fifth at Brands Hatch over the weekend.

The Kirton rider, who will remain at Gearlink Kawasaki next season, finishes fifth in the final standings.
Wilson said: “Things haven’t gone my way this year. I would have liked to have ended the season with a win but it wasn’t to be. But I am happy with fifth place overall and also pleased I managed to win at least one race this season.”

• Holbeach brothers Ryan and Ashley Rudd are well-positioned after the second round of Peterborough Motocross Club’s Winter Series at Chatteris.
Ryan, who got three holeshots again, managed two second places and a third to keep the overall lead in the Schoolboy 125 group.
TRM team-mate Ashley is second after bagging a trio of third places in the Big Wheel. Kieran Rudd, the youngest of the three brothers, managed finishes of 10th, sixth and eighth in the Autos.
