The Hunts racer launches his Ducati Performance TriOptions Cup challenge this weekend when the opening round of the series is staged at Donington Park. Railton, 26, finished runner-up in this championship back in 2013 before returning with a sixth-placed finish last summer. Now, he has high hopes of kicking on again aboard a new Ducati Panigale 959 machine for the Boast Plumbing Supplies team. Railton, who lives in Little Paxton and works for Nokia in Huntingdon, said: I rode the Ducati Panigale 899 last season and the new bike is very similar, but it just has that bit more horsepower which seems to suit me. I had a couple of wins and a couple of second places at a club meeting recently to get a feel for it. The signs are very good and Im going into the new season feeling positive. Being in contention to win races is the target and I feel its a realistic aim. Mike Green, the boss at Boast Plumbing Supplies, has backed me for a long time and it would be great to reward him, and my other sponsors, with some success. Donington Park is a fast and flowing circuit that suits my riding style. I tend to go well there and hopefully I can hit the ground running. Railton is also backed by RS Workshop Equipment, Huntingdon Business Centre, Bohn Armor, Weise, HJC Helmets and The Key Collection.
