Keyes, Toms and Ward ready for Brands Hatch Superstock 1000 and 600 tests this weekend

Wyberton's three-man G&S Racing Kawasaki squad head to Brands Hatch this weekend with a determination to impress.

The final round of this season's Pirelli National Superstock 1000 and 600 Championships goes ahead at the Kent circuit, with Kevin Keyes, TJ Toms and Milo Ward all hoping to put in their strongest performances of the season.

G&S Racing already have Keyes signed up for next year and he is looking for a top result in the Stock 600 class.

"Going into the last round of the season already signed up for 2020 means there's no pressure on me," Keyes said.

"It’s going to fun racing at Brands Hatch and I can't wait."

Meanwhile, Toms will be hoping for another strong showing after his fifth place finish at Donington Park two weeks ago.

"It wasn't an ideal finish for us at Donington, but I'mstill the only person in the top ten of the championship to have scored points in every round," Toms said.

"I really don’t want to miss out on any points in the last round at Brands Hatch."

Like Keyes, Ward has also agreed terms with G&S Racing in the Superstock 1000 championship for next year, having made good progress throughout his first season on the big bike.

This culminated in a points finish at Donington Park earlier this month.

Ward said: "After a tough start to the year, I feel like myself and the team have come on leaps and bounds.

"Having originally started off fighting for a top 30 place in races, I'm now consistently fighting for the points.

"I think it's because the bike, the team and myself have all gelled and this gives us a great starting point for next year.

"I'd like to say a huge thank you to G&S Racing for giving me the opportunity to prove what I can do this season and for trusting me to take it even further next year."

G&S Racing were out in force during the Stars at Darley meeting at Darley Moor in Derbyshire last weekend where team manager Tom Fisher returned to the track for a bit of fun, while supporting his local circuit.

However, the star of the show turned out to be Ward who finished a very close third to John McGuinness in the first race before beating him in the second race.

This left Ward in the runners-up spot behind Richard Cooper who took home the Stars at Darley trophy.

But it was no mean feat for Ward to see off a multiple Isle of Man TT winner and legend in McGuinness at the end of his first year on the big bike.
