Ben Wilson has got his hands on the new Gearlink Kawasaki Supersport machine that he will ride in the 2015 British Supersport championship.
The Kirton rider travelled to Mallory Park in Leicestershire to begin his pre-season test programme with the team, and was delighted to swing his leg over his new bike.
“This is a shakedown test to check everything is working correctly and to make any adjustments to the riding position that we find are necessary,” Wilson said.
From the off Wilson was on the pace and posting fast lap times.
“Its as if I have never been away,” he added.
“I feel comfortable on the bike and she handles very well.
“I can’t wait to get more testing under my belt prior to the first round of the new series which is at Donington Park at Easter.”
Wilson also held a second BSB Test Day at Donington Park.
Now he is preparing for the first two races of the new campaign at the Leicestershire circuit.
The Sprint race on Easter Sunday.
This will be followed by the Feature race the following day, Easter Monday.
