Jay Vincent makes last gasp wildcard return

Jay Vincent makes last gasp wildcard return

Jay Vincent secured a wildcard ride for the Cinzano British Grand Prix at the eleventh hour on Thursday, when he found out that the application from his Padgetts team had been accepted. The 31 year old former 250cc British Champion failed to secure a permanent ride for 2003 in any championship, but he will be out to prove a point this weekend riding the same Aprilia machine that he guided to fifth place here three years ago.

`Things didn´t work out for me at the end of last season for one reason or another so I haven´t actually raced since Valencia 2002,´ said Vincent. `It will be nice to have the chance to show people what I can do, although it will be tough because I haven´t ridden the 250 Aprilia since 2000. It is the same bike though so it won´t be completely new to me, and we hope to have a new engine for it which should give me a chance to be competitive´.
