Double Podium Delight For NMT No Limits Kawasaki At Cadwell Park

Double Podium Delight For NMT No Limits Kawasaki At Cadwell Park

It was a case of double delight for the NMT No Limits Kawasaki team at Cadwell Park on Sunday as the STK600 pairing of championship leader Mason Law and class rookie Jordan Weaving took the team's first 1-2 of the season in front of a packed house in Lincolnshire. In bright sunshine, the huge crowd were treated to a controlled display from Law as the Benfleet rider was never headed on the way to an impressive sixth win of the season, and with it a commanding 48 point championship lead, as Weaving backed up the title contender with a mature ride to a well-deserved second place.

In STK1000 it was a much improved weekend for Nick Anderson as the Devon rider brought his Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja home with a solid points-scoring finish. Despite the race being red-flagged just two laps in, the STK600 podium man from last year didn't lose his concentration and battled his way to twelfth place in the shortened 8 lapper before a second red flag curtailed any further progress through the field.

Qualifying proved difficult for the STK600 riders as first Jordan Weaving lost the front of his Kawasaki ZX-6R on the brakes in to Barn corner just ten minutes in to Qualifying 2 on Saturday causing the reigning Motostar Moto3 Champion to be taken to the medical center with an ankle injury and then, at the very end of the session, Mason Law crashed uninjured on track deposits from another riders machine but which unfortunately resulted in his Kawasaki having to be rebuilt over night by the NMT No Limits Kawasaki crew.

Delighted Team Manager Barry Boughton said after the races, "You talk about the highs and lows of racing, well this weekend had it all in abundance. We arrived here in good shape and on Friday started to make good progress with the guys but we had a very difficult Saturday. The STK600 boys netted two great qualifying positions but unfortunately what seemed like a fairly innocent accident for Mason resulted in a major rebuild, hats off to all the mechanics though, they pulled together and got the bike back together in the early hours of Sunday morning. Further complications set in after morning warm up and we were actually lucky to get Mason out on to the grid for the race. To get him home for the win is absolutely fantastic and just proves the quality of our guys workmanship and their attention to detail.

Jordan had a great start from sixth on the grid and then built and built on his racecraft throughout the race and to bring home second place, we just couldn't ask for any more. Those results have really put us on the map now for the remaining rounds, which we're looking to build on for next year for both 600 guys."Jordan Weaving on his way to his maiden STK600 podium finish

"The transition from riding a 600 to a 1000cc bike is a big leap and Nick is adapting well, having said that we need to get him more time on the bike. He's making steady progress, absolutely he has the talent and ability to be at the sharp end and we will continue to invest the time and effort needed to get him there. Starting fifteenth and bringing it home in twelfth in tough conditions as even though it's been warm and dry the grip hasn't been fantastic, is a great result for Nick.

It would be great for us to get the STK600 Championship wrapped up at Oulton Park, if Mason can go through qualifying like he has done for the rest of the season and then get a good start, there's no reason why he can't be on the podium yet again. We will be tactical in our approach but we'll be giving it our best shot."

After his sixth win of the season Mason Law said "It was a good race, what needed to happen happened. I wanted to lead from the front, I did a little bit more research in to which way the wind was blowing than others as down the back straight on the first lap someone paid the price by overshooting it massively. The wind was a factor today, over The Mountain I had to change my style to counter act it and it I reaped the benefit. We had crash in practice and unfortunately the boys were up until very late on Saturday night repairing my bike as well as Jordan's, but this morning the bike didn't want to play ball on one of the cylinders so this weekend has been far from easy but credit to the team it was all hands on deck and it if it wasn't for the boys the bike would've been in the back of the van and we'd have been going home.

"There's no change in mentality for the rest of the season despite a good lead in the standings, we'll take it round by round and corner by corner. We got what we deserved this weekend and I'm super proud of the whole team."

Jordan Weaving was understandably delighted with his maiden podium, he said "The race was really tough, the pace was faster than I'd been running all weekend. I got off to a really good start and dropped in behind the top three but make a few mistakes trying to run with the top three but was closing in on them before Currie crashed out and I lost a little momentum from Chrissy and Mason. I was comfortable in third place before Chrissy crashed out as my pit board was showing the gap extending behind me with each lap. It was an awesome feeling to cross the line to take my first podium in STK600 and I can't thank my team enough for their hard work after both Mason and I crashed yesterday, there's not much sleep been had by the crews so thank you so much to them all."

Nick Anderson was happy to be back in the points at Cadwell Park, he said "It was a good race and we're happy to be scoring points again. We've not done as many laps as we'd like round here so we were chasing set up a little bit. Having said that we've found a really good feeling from the front of the bike, which is a great step forwards. We've got some testing in place between now and Oulton Park so hopefully we can make up some lost ground there in a couple of weeks time and get back inside that top ten."
