Having had five weeks off from racing, Dean Ellison is raring to get back on his bike this weekend at Brands Hatch and remove any memory of his double Knockhill DNF disaster as he takes on the full World Superbike version of the spectacular Kent circuit.

"Knockhill was a tough weekend not only for me but also for the whole team. Two DNFs can really dent your confidence and we have to be strong this weekend and ensure that we remain focussed," said the D&B Ducati rider. "We are racing the full GP circuit at the weekend, which is a very good track. It's a very fast circuit and I'm confident that we can stay with the newer faster bikes at the front of the pack. After Knockhill things can only get better, I will be keeping my head down and aiming for some good results."

Brands Hatch is another British circuit that has been altered for safety reasons. This will be the first time that all the riders have tackled the new Dingle Dell section of the Kent track.

It will be a tough challenge for the young Kendal based rider with the likes of Shane 'Shakey' Byrne riding at his local track on the factory Monstermob Ducati. Plus the force of the Rizla Suzuki's with Yukio Kagayama and former British Champion, John Reynolds, on board fresh from racing the World Superbike stars at Silverstone - are all keen to prove a point.

Add to the mix the factory Ducati's of Michael Rutter and Sean Emmett, plus the super fast Glen Richards on the Hawk Kawasaki, and Ellison knows he'll be mixing it with the best.
