Marshall Neill kicked his British Supersport Championship season into gear with a runner-up double at Donington Park.

The Portadown rider has recovered from a run of significant injury issues to return to the saddle with the INCompetition Racing team.

Neill proved impressive on the 600cc machine, with overall positions of ninth and 11th but, significantly, back-to-back second-place spots within the EVO class.

“After my injury problems I was not exactly sure if I could come back just as quick,” said the 41-year-old. “But when Ed Allingham asked me to join his team I thought I would give it a go in testing.

“I am delighted with the start as the championship will be my main focus this season.”
