with any team as op­tions are avail­able.

He added: “I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to rac­ing again this year, aboard ei­ther a Kawasaki or a Yamaha, it all de­pends on which route we go down.

“Last year had it ups and downs, in­clud­ing some high speed crashes, like the one I had at Thrux­ton where I got taken out at around 110mph, but luck­ily I only put a hole in my el­bow.

“I had a good year, maybe not as good as I would have liked, but you


al­though just have to do the best you can with what you have.

“I re­ally want to be in the top six at ev­ery round this year and get some podi­ums. I hope­fully will be on a bike that is ca­pa­ble of do­ing that and I know with my arms now sorted out I can achieve this.”

With per­sonal costs of be­tween £25,000 to £50,000 to com­pete each year, Gil­bert al­ready en­joys back­ing from the likes of Bell, Knox and Day­tona, but is al­ways look­ing for new spon­sors. Any­one in­ter­ested can call Keith Gil­bert on 07855 770 507.
