Mountain acted as inspiration for Van Leuven

The two G&S Racing Kawasaki riders are anticipating some good results from the Lincolnshire round of the British Superbike championship which takes place at Cadwell Park over the weekend.

Tom Fisher usually goes well at the Wolds circuit and will be seeking a good points finish in the National Superstock 1000 championship.

He has upped his game this year and is now a regular top 15 contender - and it won’t be too long before he breaks into the top 10.

Dutch rider Kevin Van Leuven has been struggling over the past couple of rounds with technical problems but, after a test day at Cadwell last week, this appears to be resolved.

He is riding in the National Superstock 600 championship and is relishing the chance to fly over the mountain again this year.

He was a spectator a couple of years ago and was inspired to move to England by the riders who jumped over the top of the mountain.

On the back of this he contacted the team and the rest is history.

The weekend begins with free practice for both classes on Friday morning.

Van Leuven is on track first at 9am and Fisher on the Stock 1000 at noon.

The first qualifying takes place later in the day with Van Leuven out at 4.40pm followed by Fisher at 5.20pm.

Final qualifying for both classes is on Saturday, Stock 600 at 11.55am and Stock 1000 at 12.35pm.

There is a short warm up session on Sunday morning to make final preparations for the races later in the day.

Fisher has his race at 11.20 on Sunday over 15 laps of the popular Lincolnshire course while Van Leuven is on track for his 12 lap race at 1.50pm
