The three riders in the Wyberton-based G&S Racing Kawasaki team– Tom Fisher, Dominic Usher and Kevin Van Leuven – travel to Thruxton for the next round of the National Superstock 1000 and 600 Championships on Sunday.

Fisher produced his best result of the season in the Stock 1000 class last time out and had the added bonus of actually finishing in 22nd place, and not 24th as first thought, because two competitors were disqualified after the race due to a technical infringement.

Spurred on by this improvement, Fisher will be hoping to edge closer to a points finish.

Usher is also hoping for a good result as he slid off at Brands Hatch when challenging for a top 15 finish.

In the Stock 600 class Dutch rider van Leuven will also be seeking a strong result but has the disadvantage of never having ridden at the Hampshire track before so has to learn his way around before he can go for a fast lap time.
