Both G&S Racing Kawasaki riders completed their races at Cadwell Park on Sunday in round nine of the National Superstock 1000 and 600 Championship.

Tom Fisher secured another championship point for 15th place in the stock 1000 while Kevin Van Leuven had a difficult weekend but persevered and brought his Kawasaki home in 20th place.

Team manager Mark Fisher said: “Tom had tried hard all weekend and rode really well.

“There was some oil on the track during the previous session and this affected qualifying and reflected in his grid position.

“He got a cracking start in the eight-lap re-run but was held up and was in 15th place when once again the race was red flagged.

“One championship point doesn’t really reflect the effort he put in.

“Kevin made progress in his race but for some reason he seems to have lost his confidence. There is nothing wrong with the bike so it is all down to him.

“But he is working on the problem and we are to take him on some track days to try to overcome his demons.”
