Dean Ellison and the D&B Firepower Ducati team head to Oulton Park this weekend, eager to regain the front row form he showed at the same venue earlier this year.

Ellison heads to Oulton fresh from his commendable results as a World Superbike wild-card at Brands Hatch and is looking forward to attacking one of his favorite circuits.

"(Oulton Park) is where I managed to get on the front row on our last visit and I have so many people reminding me of that. It'd be great to do it again," Dean confessed. "During race one I was lying in third place when I lost the front end going into Lodge, the last corner on the final lap. It's ironic because the late great Steve Hislop took third in the race after my spill.

"I paid my respects to Steve at his funeral yesterday (Thursday) along with many other British Superbike competitors. Things in the paddock will certainly never be the same without him. He went from being my childhood hero to my friend and he'll be greatly missed," concluded Ellison.
