Gearlink Kawasaki have announced that Ben Wilson and David Jones are to ride for the team in 2012 Fuchs Silkolene British Supersport championship.

Wilson missed out on the championship win by just one point, having stood on the podium eighteen times in 24 races. Wilson said: “I am delighted to be riding for Gearlink Kawasaki again next year. This will be my fourth year with the team who are a pleasure to work with. We know what we have to improve on this time and why we didn’t quite manage to win the championship last season. I have unfinished business in Supersport and really want to win the title.”

David Jones joined the team towards the end of last season and was effusive about sticking with them: “It’s great to be able to run the Gearlink Kawasaki for 2012. We can carry on where we left off and secure some good results. I am going on a private test in December which will give me a head start for the new season.”

Team owner and manager Michael de Bidaph said: “I am really happy that we have managed to re-sign Ben for 2012. We had a couple of meetings last week resulting in him remaining in the team for another year. Obviously we were disappointed that Ben missed out on the championship last season but he intends to rectify that in 2012.

“We are also pleased that David has re-signed for another year. He shows promise and will no doubt come on in leaps and bounds with the guidance of the team throughout the new season.”
