MOTORCYCLING: Professional performance from Ward

By John Lavery

Milo Ward recorded a 22nd place in the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 championship round last weekend.

He was the only G&S Racing Kawasaki at Donington Park last weekend in a race as a support class to the British Superbike championship event at the Leicestershire circuit.

It was difficult for Ward as there was just one free practice and one solitary qualifying session to find a good set-up prior to the race. But he went about his business in a very professional way and secured a start from the seventh row.

The pace was faster than usual but Ward got his head down and brought the big Kawasaki home in a strong 22nd place.

Team manager Tom Fisher said: “It was always going to be a big ask to get up into a point scoring position but Milo learned an awful lot about the bike and its performance this weekend and rode a good, safe race for us.

“We had very little track time and there was a lot of hanging around all day each time as the free practice session was in early evening on Friday followed by just one qualifier on Saturday evening prior to the 14 lap race on Sunday at 6pm.

“Thanks to our loyal sponsors for their ongoing support, we really appreciate their input.”

The next round of the championship is at Snetterton in Norfolk over the weekend of July 19-21 when the two Stock 600 riders TJ Toms and Kevin Keyes will be back in action in their series while Milo Ward will be contesting the next round of the Stock 1000.
