Wilson reunited with Gearlink Kawasaki for 2019 Supersport return

Ben Wilson will make his much-anticipated return to racing in 2019 when he lines up on the grid again with Gearlink Kawasaki to fight for the Dickies British Supersport Championship.

Former title contender Wilson has been sidelined from on track action since sustaining injuries in a crash at the 2016 Northwest 200, but has been a constant member of the team and is now ready for his racing return. 

Wilson has a rich history in the Supersport class, only narrowly missing out on the Championship title by a single point in 2011 and taking race wins, plus podiums across a number of seasons throughout his career.

Wilson said: “After the longest break I’ve ever had from motorcycle racing, it’s great to be returning and riding a Kawasaki. I’ve waited until now to make a comeback because my leg has not been ready for me to run at the sharp end, but I know with a good testing program over the winter months I will be right where I need to be.

“I can’t wait to get out on the new Gearlink Kawasaki and get the 2019 campaign under way. Big thanks to Gearlink Kawasaki and Kawasaki UK for standing by me and giving me this fantastic opportunity.”

Kawasaki Motors UK Senior Racing Coordinator, Ross Burridge is pleased with Wilson’s decision to pick up where he left off, he said: "I am so happy to see Ben back racing for 2019! Ben has been a big part of the Team Green family for many years, and I for one have always wanted to witness him take the Supersport title.

“His injury was horrendous and would see most people not come back to racing, but Ben has shown amazing willpower over the past couple of years to get back to where he is now. He's been on the Gearlink Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R already and is showing good pace, so I can't wait to see him out on track at round one next year."
