Ben Wilson dug deep again at Knockhill trying to find a good set up during the wet qualifying session resulting in ninth place on the grid. Despite one of Ben's famous great starts, moving him to fifth place at the end of the first lap, a technical problem occurred with him finishing in a still solid 11th place.Things improved in race two and he was unfortunate not to get a podium and finished in a strong fourth place having started eighth.
His new team mate for Knockhill, Dan Cooper, with no testing on the bike secured 17th place in the first race. He improved significantly in race two finishing in 10th place.
Scott Hudson continues to ride well in his first season in the Metzeler Superstock 600 class and is still learning the tracks. He finished a creditable 16th place just outside of the points.
