BEN Wilson makes the long journey over to Assen in Holland at the weekend for round 10 of the British Supersport championship.

The Kirton rider currently holds fifth place in the overall rider standings.

This is the first time the championship has visited the circuit, and it will be a challenge for the majority of riders, including Wilson, who will have to learn their way around the circuit prior to qualifying.

There are two free practice sessions on Friday, which will enable Wilson to get to grips with the circuit layout prior to the solitary qualifying on Saturday morning.

The short sprint race - which runs over 12 laps - is scheduled to be on track at 4.25pm on Saturday.

As well as accruing championship points, the fastest lap set will establish the grid for Sunday’s feature race, which will run over 15 laps and is due on track at 2.30pm.

Wyberton’s G&S Team will not be at Assen as the Superstock 600 championship is not included in the programme.

Tom Fisher is in action at Silverstone on September 30.
