Following his maiden win in the Henderson R1 Cup at Knockhill, Ben Wilson goes into his home round at Cadwell Park on Monday full of confidence that he can repeat his performance to extend his lead in the Autumn Cup and edge nearer to Jon Kirkham who leads the overall championship in which Ben currently holds the runner up spot some 18 points adrift.
The Boston rider will also contest the eighth round of the Metzeler National Superstock championship to try and make up ground after his crash at Knockhill. It's been a race against time to get the bike up and running in the short period of time since he returned from the Scottish circuit. The bike was more badly damaged than first thought and had to be sent away to have the chassis checked and straightened and the forks replaced plus new livery made up for a new set of fairings.
“It has been a costly exercise both financially and in terms of lost opportunity to extend my points tally,” said Wilson. “I was running in third place at Knockhill and was set to pick up a further 16 championship points which would have moved me further up the standings. I am in ninth place now but all is not lost because a top result at Cadwell could move me up at least one place.”
Wilson will be making the short trip to Cadwell Park on Friday to prepare for his two championship races and with the support of his family and local supporters will be hoping for a brace of top results to reward his sponsors for their continued support.
Free practice and qualifying for the Superstock event begin on Saturday with the 16-lap race scheduled to start at 5.20pm on August Bank Holiday Monday.
The Henderson R1 Cup free practice is amalgamated with that of the KTM 990 class on Saturday and again on Sunday morning but the R1 Cup riders have the track to themselves for the sole qualifying period on Sunday at 5.20pm. Racing in that class is set for a 2.35pm start on Monday with the usual attraction of live television coverage by Eurosport 2.
