Ben Wilson hopes that home comforts can bring him glory as Cadwell Park hosts round eight of the British Supersport championship.

There is a change of date to the Lincolnshire round as, instead of the usual Bank Holiday weekend slot, the British Superbike championship meeting has moved to the August 21-23 weekend.

This is because of a date clash with the British round of MotoGP, which is to run at Silverstone over the following weekend.

Following his strong performance at Thruxton, Wilson is keen to put on a good show for his local fans, friends and family - and will be hoping for a couple of top results from the circuit that he knows like the back of his hand.

The weekend begins with two 30-minute free practice sessions on Friday at 9.40am and 2.20pm ahead of the solitary qualifying session on Saturday at 11.15am, which will determine the grid for the 12-lap sprint race at 5.20pm.

There is a short warm-up on Sunday at 10.05am to make sure all is well before Wilson takes to the grid for the 16-lap feature race which is due on track at 5.25pm.
