Reigning British Supersport champion Stuart Easton goes in search of his third win of the series this weekend at Oulton Park, fresh from victory last time out at Mondello Park that saw him close the gap on series leader Karl Harris by twenty points.

And whilst the 19-year-old Scot wants to win for his own title aspirations, he plans on doing it for fellow Teri and former team-mate Steve Hislop (pictured with Easton and team boss Paul Bird) who was tragically killed in an air accident last week.

"If ever there was a race I wanted to win it's this one and that's what I'm aiming for. Hizzy was my hero as a kid and I'd love to dedicate a win to him at one of his favourite tracks," said the Hawick teenager who has been given the honour of opening the new 'Hizzy's Chicane' on Sunday, named as a mark of respect for the reigning British Champion.

"What a roller coaster couple of weeks we've had with the highs of winning at Brands and then the devastating news about Steve," said Monstermob boss Bird, whose SBK star Shane Byrne could wrap up the crown this weekend. "We now need to put all of that behind us and focus on the job in hand which is to make sure both riders leave Oulton in a better position than when they arrived."
