Dominic Usher was in the points as Wyberton’s G&S Racing Kawasaki competed at Silverstone over the weekend.

The team’s two National Superstock 1000 riders competed at the MotoGP meeting in Northamptonshire on Sunday where they taking part in a support race.

Usher was on a mission and completed his qualifying in 15th place and started the 12-lap affair from a fifth-row grid position.

He made steady progress through the field making up a place on each lap until he reached 10th position on the penultimate lap.

He made an extra effort on the final lap to take ninth place and pick up seven championship points.

“I was happy enough with that result,” said Usher. “My qualifying didn’t go quite to plan as in the first session I was 11th but ended up 15th overall.

“But I made good progress and picked up some more valuable championship points for the team.”

Tom Fisher began the race in 29th position to set of from the 10th row.

He too made progress moving through to finish the 12 laps in 25th place.

There will be a quick turn around for the team, who will be back to full strength when Kevin Van Leuven will also be back in action at Donington Park this weekend.

On Friday, the riders will take part in free practice and first qualifying.

This will be followed by final qualifying on the Saturday.

Sunday ‘s warm-up will be followed by racing, with the 14-lap Superstock 600 race beginning at 10.35am and the 16-lap Superstock 1000 beginning at 11.20am.
