Dickies Sponsored Be Wiser Kawasaki Team Turns Attention to Snetterton After Varied Bank Holiday Weekend

The Be Wiser Kawasaki team, backed by associate sponsor Dickies, had a varied weekend at round three of the MCE British Superbike Championship at Oulton Park.

Dickies’ ambassador Chris Walker was again reliably consistent throughout the weekend scoring some solid Championship points, with an 11th place finish in race one and 9th in race two. Teammate Danny Buchan was unfortunate to crash out of race one and finished 17th in race two.
   
Chris, who took time out after the first race to sign autographs for fans at the Dickies showroom, said: "I am fairly pleased with the weekend here at Oulton Park we still have a lot of changes to make and plenty of promise to move forwards. We were a little on the back foot here as most of the teams tested the week before but we are doing the two day test at Snetterton in a couple of weeks.
 
Danny Buchan, followed by saying: "It was another really tough and frustrating weekend, everything was going so well in practice and qualifying and I felt really happy on the Be Wiser Kawasaki. It was a bit of carnage on the first lap of the race and I got pushed onto the grass, I lost my focus and sadly crashed out a couple of corners later. I struggled a little in the second race; I just wanted to bring the bike home in one piece. I am looking forward to testing at Snetterton and hopefully coming back stronger there.
 
Maurice Morton, sales and marketing director at Dickies, said: - "The team had a really good start to the weekend and were playing catch up a little as many of the teams had tested here the week before. Both Chris and Danny were riding really well and were making good progress in every session. It was a mixed weekend but we look forward to seeing both riders bounce back at Snetterton at the next race meeting.
