Easton admits nerves ahead of return

Stuart Easton will make a popular return to the MCE British Superbike Championship grid at Brands Hatch, aboard the Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki.
Stuart Easton admits he is feeling some nerves ahead of his much anticipated return to MCE British Superbike Championship competition at Brands Hatch.

The Scot was left with a series of horrific injuries following an accident on the North West 200 in May 2011, ailments that necessitated a recovery process that he is only now coming to the conclusion of almost a year later.

Easton will ride for the Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki operation this season, marking the fulfilment of a promise by team manager Paul Bird, who publically declared that he would guarantee the 28-year-old a seat for 2012 shortly after the accident.

Now with the new season looming, three-time BSB race winner Easton concedes he is feeling some nerves ahead of what will be a popular comeback.

"Every time I've sat on the bike in testing, we have made progress and although it's been hard work since my accident, I'm now bike fit, I just have to get race fit and where better place to do that than at Brands Hatch this weekend. The team have kept their promise of providing me with a bike when I was in hospital and here we are but I'll admit to being a little nervous."
