WSS: Kennaugh receives Donington wild-card

The British Supersport Championship will be represented when the latest round of the World Supersport Championship gets underway at Donington Park after Hudson Kennaugh was added to the list of entrants.

The South African competed at the circuit last season aboard the Raceways Yamaha, where he proceeded to finish a strong fifth place.

This year, however, he will line up with the Linxcel-Seton team he has been competing with in the British championship, a relationship that has so far seen him score a best of fourth place at Brands Hatch and Snetterton.

“I'm so excited about the wild card for Donington; it's the perfect opportunity for me and the team to compare ourselves to the best in the world.” Kennaugh said. “If they can bring along the same formula they had at Snetterton it can only be good.

“Its going to be a tough race against some of the worlds best, but I believe in the team and in myself and I will go out there and do my best. This is our chance to shine” Hudson commented on the situation at hand.”

Sashyboy - just cause you live in SA means you need to get out and see the real world. I lived in SA for 20 years (watched all of HK races) and you have no idea how quick he is till you see him up against the kind of talent that's is in the UK. As for statements about Raceways Yam - till you know both sides of the politics best to keep your uninformed comments to yourself

This boy has been deserving of a ride at world level for some time - only hope him and the team get it right to really show his ability to all. Even if he can hold on to Laverty and Crutchlow for most of the race will be good.
