Wyberton’s G&S Racing Kawasaki recorded two positive results at the sweltering Snetterton circuit on Sunday.

In the National Superstock 600 race, Tom Fisher rode to a solid eighth place to edge up into joint ninth place in the rider standings on 39 points.

After qualifying in 10th, Fisher quickly moved up to ninth place, which he held for the first three laps until Richie Leech got the better of him on lap four.

But Leech crashed out of the race two laps later, gifting Fisher ninth place once again.

Despite being caught by Grant Whitaker, two further crashes saw Fisher progress through the field earn eighth.

Dominic Usher rode through from the eighth row of the grid to take a fine 20th place in the 1,000cc class.

He was hampered during qualifying with a rear wheel sensor problem which left him down in 30th position with a lot of work to do.

But as the race got underway he began to make a move through the field but had to settle for 20th place.

The next round is at Brands Hatch from July 19-21.
