Both G&S Racing Kawasaki riders completed their respective 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 for the Wyberton-based team.

Fisher qualified in 21st position to start his race from a seventh row grid position.

He got away to a fantastic start and was up to 16th within a couple of corners.

But his efforts were all for nothing as the red flag halted proceedings for a crash.

The race had already been reduced by three laps to 12 because of an accident in an earlier race and was reduced down to just eight laps for the re-start.

An eight-lap dash to the flag is not ideal but Fisher was up for the challenge and rode through from 18th to 15th by lap five, but then the red flag came out once again and this time a result was called after just five laps.

Van Leuven was finding it hard to come to terms with the undulating Lincolnshire circuit.

He completed his qualifying down in 35th position and started his race from the 12th row.

He reached 20th place on the final lap.

Although he was not in a point-scoring position at least he made good progress and completed the race in 20th place.

The next round is at Oulton Park on September 6.
