Wyberton-based G&S Racing Kawasaki will travel to the Hampshire circuit of Thruxton for the next round of the National Superstock 1000 and 600 championships.

The trio of Tom Fisher, Dominic Usher and Kevin Van Leuven will all be aiming for top results on Sunday.

Fisher rode to his best result of the season in the Stock 1000 class last time out, and had the added bonus of actually finishing in 22nd place and not 24th as first though because two competitors were disqualified after the race because of a technical infringement.

Spurred on by this improvement in his performance, Fisher will be hoping to move further up the finishing order at Thruxton to edge closer to a points finish.

Dominic Usher is also hoping for a good result as he slid off his machine at Brands Hatch when challenging for a top 15 finish.

In the Stock 600 class, Dutch rider Kevin van Leuven will also be seeking a strong result but he has the disadvantage of never having ridden at the Hampshire track before so has to learn his way around before he can go for a fast lap time.

The timetable is: Superstock 1000: Friday – Free Practice 11.40am; Qualifying 1 3pm; Saturday – Qualifying 2 1 2.40pm; Sunday – Warm-up 8.55am; 16 lap race – 12.35pm.

Superstock 600: Friday – Free Practice 11.05am, Qualifying 1 – 2.25pm; Saturday – qualifying 2 12.05pm, Free Practice 5.40pm; Sunday – 14 lap race 11.40am.
