The two G&S Racing Kawasaki riders will head down to Kent for the seventh round of the National Superstock 1000 and 600 championships, which take place at Brands Hatch this weekend.

Tom Fisher was unceremoniously gathered up in another rider’s crash at Knockhill last time out and will be hoping to get his championship challenge back on track for the Wyberton-based team this time around.

He scored his first set of championship points at Snetterton and will be looking to add to this at Brands Hatch.

Kevin Van Leuven will also be seeking a strong result to add to his points tally and move further up the championship table as we enter the second half of the 2015 season.

Both riders will take full advantage of the free qualifying session on Friday with Van Leuven out in the Stock 600 session at 9am followed later in the morning by Fisher in the Stock 1000 at 11.50am.

The first of two qualifying sessions take place after the lunch break with Van Leuven out first at 1.25pm and Fisher at 4.15pm.

Final qualifying is on Saturday this time with Fisher out first at 9.40am and Van Leuven at 12.30pm.

Fisher is on track again on Sunday morning for a 10-minute warm at 9.15am up prior to his 16-lap race at 12.35pm, while Van Leuven has his warm up at 9.55am and a 14-lap race at 2.15pm.

The team are in talks with a number of riders to replace Jordy De Jonge, who has returned to the Netherlands to continue his recovery following the accident he suffered at Brands Hatch earlier in the season.

It is possible the new rider will make his debut at Brands Hatch this week
