Kirton rider Wilson is raring to go as he returns to the British Supersport series after a year in the Superbike class.

Wilson has a fantastic pedigree in the championship, finishing fourth in 2013, fifth in 2012 and second in 2011 - where he was pipped to top spot on the podium by Alastair Seeley by a solitary point.

After taking part in the official test at Donington Park on Thursday, Wilson has now concluded his pre-season testing programme and is confident that the Gearlink Kawasaki machine is one of the fastest bikes on the track and capable of winning races this year.

The action begins on Saturday with free practice followed by qualifying and a sprint race on Sunday ahead of the feature race on Easter Monday.

Timetable: Saturday - 9.35am: free practice; 2pm: free practice; Sunday - 11.40am: qualifying; 5.15pm sprint race - 10 laps; Monday - 10.07am: warm-up; 3.35pm: feature race, 18 laps.
