Riding the KTM85cc Ollie, a second year student at the Banovallum School in Horncastle, has won every race in the previous five rounds of the championship. He was top of the leaderboard in practice with an advantage of just half a second ahead of Oskar van Endert but his record of wins was about to end as it was Van Endert who took the flag for first place in race one over a second ahead of Wilson.

In race two Wilson and Van Endert battled it out for the win in the second encounter and this time it was Wilson who took the honours 0.6s ahead of his rival. He went on to win race three 0.4s ahead of Van Endert and went into the grand final determined to end his weekend with a win and he did just that but by the narrowest of margins just 0.287s ahead of Van Endert to take the overall win over the weekend.

Ollie is the eldest son of former British Superbike and Supersport rider Ben Wilson who is now team manager for the Gearlink British Supersport team which runs with the British Superbike championship and is also a director at Wilsons Motorcycles at Kirton.
