Wright savours 100th BSB win

Amidst the celebrations of Leon Camier's 14th British Superbike victory of the season, Colin Wright was also enjoying the limelight at Brands Hatch after notching up his 100th win as team manager.

Twenty-one years in the making, Wright has enjoyed success with a myriad of riders over the years, most notably Troy Bayliss, James Toseland and Neil Hodgson, but also Shane Byrne, Leon Haslam and Gregorio Lavilla.

With Camier making up 17 of those wins in just the two years he has competed with GSE Racing, Wright took the opportunity to thank the members who have helped him reach his 'ton'.

"I'm over the moon but feeling old! The credit I have received is humbling but none of it could have been achieved without the total commitment and dedication of the people who I have worked with since 1988. Thank you to everyone who has made this milestone possible."

GSE Racing are now getting closer to guaranteeing themselves the 2009 title, with Camier's advantage over third place Stuart Easton standing at 156.5 points. With nine races and a maximum of 225 points remaining, it means the team can ensure it is heading for a fifth title as early as Cadwell Park.

Congratulations to Colin and all at GSE Last year when they announced a change to Yamaha from Ducati many were calling it career suicide but you dont get where Colin is without knowing one or two things about the job and the proof is there for all to see that he made the right choice
