Ben Willshire's 2010 superkart season has started with promising pace after a top 6 finish at the Pembrey circuit in Wales and more recently with a second place finish at Silverstone.

Willshire was one of the quickest 125cc superkarts during free practice around the newly revamped Stowe circuit.  However, an engine problem in qualifying meant him left him starting race 1 from the rear of the grid on his spare race engine. A sensible but agressive drive saw Willshire climb through the pack to finish a respectable 7th position.  In Race 2, Willshire made up for the earlier dissapointment by putting in consistently quick laps and overtaking to take a well deserved 2nd place.
