Ben Wilson is to contest the NW200 Supersport races with Gearlink Kawasaki - but will not represent the team in the other races in Ireland or in the British Supersport Championship.

Wilson will team up with his former teammate Alastair Seeley in the NW200 Supersport race in the Northern Ireland races, and is anticipating a strong result when the races take place in mid-May.

“I am looking forward to making my return to the NW200 this year,” the Kirton rider said.

“Last year was a learning year and I really enjoyed the experience.

“I know the Gearlink Kawasaki team so well and I know that we can achieve some really strong results there.

“I secured an 11th and ninth last year and will be pushing hard to improve on those results this year and thank Michael and Norma (de Bidaph - team bosses) for the opportunity.”

Wilson will soon be in a position to announce the rest of his plans for the forthcoming season and it’s apparent he will be riding in the Superbike and Superstock races at the NW200.

His new team is due to release its plans within the next few days.
