BEN Wilson travels to Brands Hatch in Kent this weekend for the second visit of the year, this time contesting the two British Supersport races on the full GP course.

On the Kirton rider’s first visit of the year to Brands Hatch they raced on the Indy circuit and Wilson scored a fine second place. A repeat of this on the full circuit would boost his championship challenge and add significantly to his points tally.

There is a change to the programme this time and instead of the usual sprint race on the Saturday followed by the feature race on Sunday, both races are to be held on the Sunday.

There will be an official test session on Friday afternoon at 3.25pm on the Indy circuit and the riders progress to the full circuit on Saturday where they take part in free practice at 10.20am followed by qualifying at 2.40pm.

The 10-lap sprint race, which begins the second half of the season, will take place on Sunday morning at 10.16am and the feature race is set to commence at 3.45pm over 16 laps of the Kent circuit.
