There were mixed feelings for Wyberton-based G&S Racing Kawasaki at Cadwell Park at the weekend.

All three riders put in good performances, marred by a nasty fall for Daniel Hegarty, causing his race to be red flagged.

Tom Fisher was riding in the Superstock 600 class and completed his qualifying in ninth position.

By the second lap he had moved up to eighth place and was posting lap times faster than ever before at the Lincolnshire track.

But five laps into the race he discovered his right knee slider was missing, and with Cadwell being a right handed circuit, that made life difficult for the Nottingham rider.

But Tom is a fighter and kept pushing on to complete the race in 10th place.

This result puts Tom 12th in the overall rider standings on 51 points.

Dominic Usher began his race in the Superstock 1,000 class from a seventh row grid position and was soon mixing it with the mid fielders.

He pushed forward picking up places and was running in 16th place and poised to move up a place and into a point scoring position when the red flag brought the race to an early end on lap nine of the planned 15.

Hegarty (pictured) began the Superstock 1,000 from the eighth row and got away to a splendid start.

He moved up to 19th place on the first lap and was running well, but he suffered a massive high side at Park corner on lap nine and was thrown onto the tarmac.
