British Superbike rider Ben Wilson will travel to Brands Hatch for his second visit of the year to the Kent circuit.

This time he is racing on the full GP circuit, whereas the first race of the season took part on the short Indy circuit.

Following the disappointment at Knockhill in the last round - where he finished 16th in the first race and pulled out of the second encounter with a bike problem - the Kirton rider will be hoping for a change of luck this weekend as he’s back on the bike.

On his last visit to Brands Hatch, Wilson came away with fourth and 10th-place finishes in the opening round of the MCE British Superbike championship, and a repeat of that would be very welcome.

However, this time he will be on the GP circuit so the data collected from his first visit will be of little use to him.

So once again, the three free practice sessions will be spent finding a good setting for the Gearlink Kawasaki Superbike ahead of the three stage qualifying session on Saturday.

The Superbike timetable is: Friday - Free practice one - 10.10am; Free practice two - 4.15pm; Saturday - Free practice three - 10.35am; Qualifying - 4.05pm; Sunday - Warm up - 9.30am; Race one 20 laps - 1.30pm; Race two 20 laps - 4.30pm.
