THE G&S Kawasaki racing team of Jono Howarth and Tom Fisher head to Knockhill for the fifth round of their respective championships at the weekend.

The Wyberton-based team is looking forward to a ride around the Scottish circuit and hope to bring back some strong results and a clutch of championship points.

Howarth, who recently celebrated his 28th birthday, is anxious to score well in the Superstock 1,000 race to add to his points tally.

He finished in 10th place in the last round and would like to improve further at Knockhill.

He said: “For a circuit that has a lap time of less than 50 seconds it has everything a racer could wish for.

“Fast corners mixed with a really tight hairpin requiring some really hard braking - I love the place and can’t wait to get there.”

Fisher is still awaiting the chance to score some points in the Superstock 600 championship, and will be hoping for a sunny and warm weekend to help him achieve this.

The wet conditions at Thruxton last time out didn’t suit the Nottingham rider who struggled to see because of the spray thrown up from the bikes ahead of him.

“I really hope the weather holds out for us this time,” said Fisher.

“Knockhill is notorious for wet weather, but fingers crossed it will stay fine and we have a nice dry race.

“I do like the circuit layout; it is a demanding place, all ups and downs and tricky corners – quite a challenge.”

Free practice and qualifying takes place over Friday and Saturday, with the 22 lap Superstock 600 race on Sunday at noon followed by the Superstock 1,000 event run over 24 laps at 2.40pm.
