WSBK - Wildcard entry

Posted: 31 Jul 2011

Rider of the weekend: John Hopkins

Why? Wild card, enthusiastic and consistent

John Hopkins was a wildcard entry in this weekend’s World Superbike Championship, taking a break from his British Superbike schedule.

On a smaller budget than the rest of the grid, his enthusiasm and riding skills put him on pole position for the race.

He ran consistently in both outings, and ended up with fifth and seventh place finishes respectfully.
