BEN Wilson is looking to continue his winning streak at Oulton Park this weekend.

The Kirton racer, who leads the Fuchs Silkolene British Supersport series by 49 points, has won the last four races at the Cheshire circuit.

As the championship heads into the second half of the season Wilson remains in control at the top of the rider standings – but nearest rival Alistair Seeley got the better of him twice last time out at Snetterton.

But the 29-year-old Gearlink Kawasaki ace is focused on extending his advantage.

He said: “Seeley got the better of me at Snetterton but Oulton Park is one of my stronger circuits, so hopefully I will be able to take it to him there.

“My Gearlink Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R is more suited to the undulating Oulton Park circuit and I will be giving it my all in both races at the weekend to maintain my series lead.”

Two free practice sessions take place on Friday and a single qualifying on Saturday morning ahead of the ten-lap sprint race at 4.30pm.

The feature race over 15 laps is on Sunday, with a provisional start time of 3.50pm.

Championship standings: 1st B Wilson (Gearlink Kawasaki) 248pts; 2nd A Seeley (Relentless TAS Suzuki) 199pts; 3rd S Warren (Seton Tuning Bike Interceptor) 113pts; 4th P Young (Oxford Tag Triumph) 112pts; 5th B McConnell (Oxford Tag Triumph) 111pts; 6th L Mossey (Smiths (Gloucester) Racing) 111pts; 7th J Kennedy (Colin Appleyard/Macadam Racing) 99pts; 8th D Cooper (Smiths (Gloucester) Racing) 96pts; 9th S Plater (Padgetts Honda) 80pts; 10th L Johnston (East Coast Racing) 70pts.
