Fresh from his outstanding ride at Oulton Park, Dean Ellison and the D&B Ducati team head for the Highlands this weekend. The Knockhill circuit is renowned for it's unpredictable Scottish weather, glorious sunshine one minute and torrential downpours the next.

Still in high spirits after his 'Man of the Meeting' accolade at Oulton, Ellison now has his eye on that elusive first podium, which he had within his grasp last time out - until disaster struck, on the last lap, when he ran wide into the gravel.

"Obviously, I'm looking forward to Knockhill after the way things went at Oulton Park. We have new brakes for this weekend, which was a big problem for us here last year. With the way the team engine builder, Nik Goodison is building the engines, we will be really strong at such a short-circuit," said Dean. "I have always enjoyed racing at Knockhill and the weather always adds an element of excitement to the whole weekend.

"It is a very difficult circuit at which to pass, and a favourite corner for nipping by is at the hairpin. This is where the new brakes from SBS should help. The team also got chance to develop a new setting for the wet at Oulton Park so whatever the weather brings we should have a good race set up," he concluded.
