Kirton racer Ben Wilson is raring to go as he returns to Snetterton this weekend.

The British Superbikes Championship is back following a long break to make way for the North West 200 and Isle of Man TT road races and Wilson can’t wait to get going again.

He has previously enjoyed success at the Norfolk circuit and is looking forward to getting back on board his Gearlink Kawasaki Superbike for the two races on Sunday.

The team has been working on the bike to make some adjustments and they believe it will be more competitive at Snetterton.

The action begins tomorrow with free practice sessions at 10.10am and 2.35pm followed by a further free practice on Saturday at 10.35am.

The three-stage qualifying session is on Saturday afternoon and the outcome of that will decide the grid for the first race on Sunday.

A 15-minute warm-up is on Sunday at 9.30am in preparation for the first 16-lap race at 1.30pm.

The second race is scheduled to get under way at 4.30pm.

Wilson is currently tenth in the rider standings on 20 points and will be going all out for two top results to move him up the leaderboard.
