Brands Hatch

The team had a steady end to the season despite Ben Wilson and James East both crashing out during the qualifying session for the first race.

Ben Wilson, despite qualifying in ninth place, briefly led the first race finally finishing in seventh but improved his grid position to fifth for race 2. He had another great start and was dicing with the front runners finally finishing in a creditable fifth position.

Ben's team mate, James East, was riding in only his second race meeting for the team and gained his best ever Supersport results finishing 11th in the first race and a strong seventh place in race 2.

Jack Groves riding in the National Superstock 600 championship struggled throughout the weekend managing to salvage 26th place in the race.

Team Manager - Michael de Bidaph. " 2012 has been a tough year for the team but we are already working on completing our plans for 2013 and in starting a testing programme ready for the first race at Brands Hatch next year. I would like to thank all our loyal sponsors, our fans and all the Gearlink team for working so hard this year and look forward to adding more sponsors and a new partner for Ben. We have been approached by many top riders which shows that we have become one of the top professional Supersport teams."
