Reward for efforts at Donington Park
The three-man G&S Racing Kawasaki squad of Milo Ward, Kevin Keyes and TJ Toms all safely completed their races at Donington Park.
Ward finished 15th in the penultimate round of the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship to pick up a point while Toms and Keyes were fifth and 10th respectively in the Pirelli National Superstock 600 race.
Ward has been gradually moving forward over the last few races and was rewarded for his efforts by finishing in the points.
He qualified for a seventh row start in difficult conditions as the track was greasy from the overnight rain. But as the race unfolded, he made good progress through the field to complete his race in 15th place.
Toms rode well and began his race from the fourth row.
When the course car came out to allow the track to be cleared of debris following a three-rider crash, he found himself up in fourth place. Despite losing a place on lap nine of 14, he maintained his position and came home in fifth place.
Keyes began the race just behind his team-mate on row five and was running in eighth place when the safety car came onto the circuit.
But he lost a knee slider when he was caught by another competitor and lost ground to ninth. With three laps to go he lost another place and completed his race in 10th position.
Team manager Tom Fisher said: "We have had a cracking weekend here at Donington with all three riders bringing points back to the team.
"Milo was superb in the difficult track conditions and got up into the points.
"TJ also rode well and was not far away from the podium.
"Kevin also rode well but was hampered by losing his knee slider which was unfortunate for him or he would have been nearer to the front of the field.
"Thank you to our loyal sponsors and supporters for their company again this weekend, your support is always appreciated."
The final round of both series is at Brands Hatch on October 18-20 but prior to that the team will be at Darley Moor this coming weekend for the annual Stars at Darley. Ward will be out on his usual stock 1000 bike and will be joined by Tom Fisher who will be on Keyes' stock 600.
