Wilson certainly doesn't lack 'competitive spirit' and the ZX10 is the bike to be on right no as well. If they can sort out set-up and get Wilson comfortable on it then this entry could certainly add even more spice to BSB races.

I'm already looking forward to BSB 2014 - I have a LOT more confidence and expectation of top-drawer, proper man-size RACING from the British Series than I do from either of the International Dorna 'run' WSBK or Grand Prix.

Good news wih another team coming to Superbike class, only problem is running yet another Kawasaki, geting to be a bit of a one-make series like Superstock 600 & 1000 classes

Cant wait to see Ben in BSB on a competitive bike, His hard charging style will no doubt frighten a few of the top riders and i can see Ben mixing it well with Brookes et al. Great news for gear link who are one of the most welcoming teams in the Paddock well done Michael and Norma for giving Ben the chance to step up.

I think he will be fun to watch on the big bike but not convinced his style will make him a winner... while you may have to wrestle them around somewhat.. you need to be relatively smooth on handling and throttle (not saying you cannot slide it which makes for good television) to be really fast over many laps.

Ben seems really rough on the 600 although his body position is impressive in a photo...hopefully the 1000 can cover his rough riding style (not that I am any better on my keyboard) and make him more successful on the SBK than he was on the 600.

Ben will be ok its time for him to be on Superbike, As for Kawasaki's ruling the roost not for a long time they didnt it has been Ducatti Honda Suzuki & Yamaha's turn and its logical for Gearlink to do this!
Good luck Ben its better watchin BSB than the Spanish Championships ( sorry i mean motogp) all we have to do now is to change the rules to suit Ducatti maybe let them have 1500cc and 1 lap start?
