Jon Railton has set his sights on climbing into the top 10 of the British Superstock 1000 Championship.

Railton finished 18th when returning to the grid for the third round of the championship at Oulton Park recently.

The 24 year-old from Little Paxton is back in action this weekend for round four which forms part of the undercard as the World Superbike Championship series visits Donington Park.

Railton said: “It was looking as though I might take a year out to try to come back bigger and better in 2016, but my long-standing sponsor Boast Plumbing Supplies built me a bike and paid for the entries into the series.

“We made decent progress in the last round at Oulton Park considering it was our first outing and it is not one of my favourite tracks.

“I was pretty happy to finish 18th after qualifying down in 28th, but I’m aiming to start scoring points going forward.

“The top 10 is my aim and I think it is fairly realistic. Donington is a track I enjoy and I’m looking forward to it.”
