Ben Wilson is hoping that home comforts will help him get back on track this Bank Holiday weekend.

The Kirton rider will return to the British Superbike championships at Lincolnshire circuit Cadwell Park.

Wilson had a torrid time in the previous round as he was withdrawn from the three races by Gearlink Kawasaki when the machine became unstable.

But there is hope for the rider as he prepares for the Party in the Park round on his home track.

The bike has been stripped down and rebuilt over the past two weeks in an effort to solve the problems that have plagued the team for the majority of the races this year.

Wilson has had a couple of test sessions to make sure the bike is on good form for his two races on home tarmac this weekend.

The weekend begins with two free practice sessions on Saturday, one at 10.10am and the other at 3.30pm.

On Sunday there is a third free practice session at 10.10am ahead of the three-stage qualifying laps at 4.05pm.

Bank Holiday Monday sees Wilson take part in the 15-minute warm-up to make sure all is well for the two races, the first of which is at 1pm and takes in 18 laps of the picturesque Cadwell circuit.

The second race is scheduled for 4.30pm over the same race distance.

As per the norm Sunday’s qualifying and Monday’s two races will be screened live by British Eurosport 2.
