The Wyberton-based G&S Racing Kawasaki team return to Brands Hatch at the weekend for their second visit to the Kent circuit.

They will be riding on the crest of a wave after some excellent results at Knockhill last time.

Dominic Usher scored a strong fifth place in the Superstock 1000 championship and Kevin Van Leuven was 10th in the stock 600 class.

Tom Fisher overcame a heavy crash in free practice to finish 28th in the stock 1000 and took on board some more useful information in his rookie year.

All three riders have raced at Brands Hatch in the past, although this will be the first time Van Leuven has competed on the full GP circuit.

He will have the data from the Indy circuit to work with but has to learn his way around the rest of the track. But no doubt he walked the full circuit during his time there back in April which will help him.
