Good Friday was an exceptionally good day for Kirton rider Ben Wilson.

With just two weeks before the first race of the 2016 season he has secured a ride with EHA Racing and will compete on an Aprilia RSV4RF in the National Superstock championship.

“I am so pleased that I am to ride the Aprilia in the Superstock championship this year for team EHA Racing,” Wilson said.

“I have unfinished business in the class and I expect to be chasing wins and podium finishes throughout the season.

“I have to thank Steve Plater for his help, he has been very much involved in sorting this out for me and I am very grateful.”

Ben will make his debut for the team this week at the official British Superbike test at Silverstone, and will contest his first race for his new team on April 10.

Wilson will also be riding at the North West 200 races in Ireland in May.

There he will be riding for his former team Gearlink Kawasaki in both the Superbike and Supersport events.
