MOTORSPORT: New deal top tonic ahead of Ben’s finale

Have your say

Ben Wilson travels to Brands Hatch this weekend for the season finale of the British Supersport Championship, fresh off the back of signing a new deal with Gearlink Kawasaki.

The Kirton rider is aiming to end his fourth season with the team with a couple of top results to add to the win he secured last time out at Silverstone.

Wilson, who inked a new contract with his team before winning at Silverstone,is assured of a top five spot in the rider standings – and, if things go his way, the 30-year-old is still in with an outside chance of ending the year in fourth place.

The weekend kicks off with two free practice sessions on Friday, followed by qualifying at 10.25am on Saturday to establish the gird for the start of the sprint race.

That will be run over 10 laps of the Brands Hatch GP course at 4.40pm that afternoon.

The final race of the championship takes place on Sunday and will run over 18 laps, starting at 3.30pm.
