Ben Wilson is to return to the National Superstock Championship for the 2007 season, riding a GSX-R 1000 for the newly formed Windmill Suzuki team - in which he will be the sole rider.

The 24-year-old won the Junior Superstock title in 2001, before finishing sixth in British Supersport the following season. 2003 then saw Wilson make the step up to Superstock, where he rode to fifth place before being signed by Vivaldi Racing. Third overall in 2004 was rewarded with a Vivaldi British Superbike ride for 2005.

Ben completed his rookie BSB campaign in 17th place, then went on to finish twelfth during the 2006 season, with a string of top ten results to his credit.

"I have to thank all at Vivaldi Racing for giving me the opportunity to ride in the premier British class over the past two seasons, I knew right from the start they were dedicated to bringing on young riders, and so was set to move on this year," said Wilson.

"However nothing ever goes to plan in racing, I was disappointed to be let down by a sponsor who pulled out at the eleventh hour, leaving me unable to secure a British Superbike ride for the 2007 season," he revealed. "It was the toughest decision I have ever had to make, but it was just impossible for me to raise the funds required to secure a Superbike ride this year.

"David Hilton from Windmill Cars of Boston has very kindly stepped in to help me fund the Superstock ride, and I intend to repay him by lifting the winner's trophy. The Superstock championship is one of the most competitive series out there, but I am sure the new Suzuki will be up to the task. I intend to do a few test days shortly
and can't wait to put the new K7 through its paces.

"The agreement we have with Crescent Performance is quite unique, the idea being to aid as much as possible with the promotion of Crescent Performance Parts, which I again thank them for the opportunity to do," he added.

To help with the team's 2007 budget, Wilson will be holding a one off fund raising night, to which all are welcome, on the 12th March at the Fourcross Road public house Boston (A52), commencing at 7.30 pm.
