Gearlink Racing Kawasaki endured a torrid weekend at Oulton Park - where their three riders were contesting the National Superstock 1000 and 600 championship races.

Dominic Usher qualified for a ninth row start to the Superstock 1,000 race and got away to a good start for the Wyberton-based side.

But his progress was short lived when an out-of-control rider crashed into him, putting him out of the race on the very first lap.

In the same race, new signing Dan Hegarty took part in the last chance qualifying race, where he finished in a strong fourth place to qualify one row back from his teammate.

Despite it being his first time on the bike and his first time this year in the Superstock 1,000 championship he brought the Kawasaki home in 26th place from 40 starters.

In the last race of the day, Tom Fisher struggled to maintain his race pace and, after starting from a third row grid position, dropped back to 15th on the opening lap and continued to lose places throughout the 12 laps.

Eventually, he crossed the finish line in 18th place, well outside a points scoring position.
