Dean Ellison heads to Snetterton this weekend with his head held high. In race one of the BSB season opener at Silverstone, the D&B Ducati rider claimed a strong seventh place - one place ahead of reigning champ Steve Hislop.

Although race two was to see Ellison DNF, he arrives in Norfolk confident he can once again challenge the factory riders.

"I'm glad to have got the first race of the season out the way as you can never be sure how things will pan out," reflected Dean. "Snetterton is a very fast track and I'm confident that I can keep up to speed with the top lads."

Snetterton is indeed one of the quickest tracks in the UK, and a healthy gathering of fanatical spectators are expected to watch Britain's top Superbike stars battle, at speeds of up to 180mph, on Sunday.
