The G&S Racing Kawasaki team were at Silverstone over the weekend - where both Tom Fisher and Kevin Van Leuven finished their races in the points.

Teammate Ozzie Madey recorded a 25th place on his first visit to the Northamptonshire circuit.

In the stock 1,000 class, Fisher completed his qualifying in 19th place to start the 11-lap race from the seventh row.

He shot away to a good start to finish the first lap in 15th position.

At mid-race distance he moved to 14th and, one lap later, took up 13th place and completed the remaining laps in a lonely 13th place to pick up three championship points.

Van Leuven was competing in the Stock 600 class and, following his heavy crash at Assen, he bravely rode through the pain barrier to record a fine 11th place at the end of the 10-lap race.

He maintained 15th on the first lap before making his way forward until he reached 11th place on the last lap.

He held station to the chequered flag to pick up five championship points bringing his total to 32 with one race remaining in the series.

Madey showed maturity beyond his years in his approach to learning the circuit.

Once he began his qualifying his lap times began to improve and he started his race in the Stock 600 class from a 12th row grid position.

He was holding 35th position on the first lap but gradually moved forward to make up an amazing 10 places to a creditable 25th place.

Also competing in the stock 600 series was Kirton’s ACR Kawasaki rider Aaron Clarke.

He recorded a top-20 result in the penultimate round.

After qualifying in 26th he dropped to 29th on the first lap but soon recovered to take up 26th again.

He then began to make his move forward, passing fellow Lincolnshire rider Tim Neave on lap seven.

He made steady progress in the final three laps, crossing the finish line in 20th position.

The final round of the championship is at Brands Hatch on October 18.
