Mission Accomplished In 2015 For NMT No Limits Kawasaki

The 2015 season drew to a close this weekend at Brands Hatch for NMT No Limits Kawasaki as Mason Law took the final podium of his STK600 career with second place in front of a huge crowd at the Kent circuit. Class rookie Jordan Weaving took a creditable fifth place in Sunday's 6 lap sprint race after a red flag called a temporary halt to proceedings after an incident involving several riders

After a tough debut season for STK1000 man Nick Anderson there was relief all round as he brought his Kawasaki ZX-10R home in 18th place. As was the same with the STK600 pair, Friday Free Practice and Q1 was blighted by the wet weather leaving Saturday's sole session as the only worthwhile dry track time to get a good setup ready for race day. A good start and a solid race saw Nick take the chequered flag in 18th place as the curtain came down on a difficult maiden year.

After the final race of the season Mason Law took his rightful place on the grid alongside the the other class champions, complete with number 1 plates, to round off what has been a fantastic season for the Benfleet rider who, courtesy of the STK600 rules, must now move on from the class. Jordan Weaving once again showed his emerging talent on the Kawasaki ZX-6R and will undoubtedly be a contender next season and for Nick Anderson it's time to reflect and regroup and come out swinging for 2016 to show his true colours after a tough 2015.

Team Manager Barry Boughton said, "To see Mason on the grid amongst the other class champions of 2015 really brought home what we have achieved as a team this season. When we signed Mason it was with the sole intent of winning the STK600 championship, so we really are 'mission accomplished' in that respect. Jordan had another strong race, confirming his pedigree for next season and Nick got the finish he needed to go in to the off-season with confidence.

It's not been an easy year for us, we've had ups and downs like any team, but that's racing. The Kawasaki motorcycles have proved their strength and we're proud to have put on such a strong show with them. The 2015 is done, and we've learned a lot this year. 2016 starts now and we're as excited as ever at the prospects in store.

Thank you to our valued sponsors, to Kawasaki, our crews, the support staff who keep us fed every weekend and our talented riders, it's been a great season.

Roll on 2016!"

STK600 Champion Mason law said afterwards, "I enjoyed the race today, it was nice to come here with no pressure and to race at 100%. After the race was red-flagged I didn't get the best of starts but I've debriefed and we know the problem. I was good at the end of the race on the worn tyre, homage to pre-season testing, the NMT No Limits Kawasaki was hooking up well so I went for it. I had a flashback to school with teachers telling me to duck for the line so I just threw everything at it and it wasn't until I saw my crew standing at the number two board in Parc Ferme that I realised we'd snatched it.

The NMT No Limits Kawasaki team, MSS Performance and Andy from Kais Ohlins have put together an incredible package for me this year and I can't thank them enough. It's been a relaxed environment and we've had good people with us, my mechanic Paul has been exceptional. Thank you also to the ladies in the kitchen, most people don't see them over a weekend and they deserve a lot of credit for the effort and hard work that they too put in."

Jordan Weaving was philosophical after his debut season, he said "It was never going to be easy this year and it certainly hasn't been. I've learned a lot about myself and about racing a 600cc machine and what a machine the Kawasaki ZX-6R is. It took a while to find our feet but we got there and I really can't thank the team and my crew enough for all their help in making this huge step possible.

Huge thanks to everyone involved in the team, the management, the support staff and my crew. None of this would ever be possible without my family, my loyal sponsors and my supporters. Thank you to everyone. See you in 2016!"

 
Nick Anderson added "I can't deny it's a relief to end the season, after all we've been through this year with injury and bad luck it's a nice feeling to get to the end. The NMT No Limits Kawasaki team have been hugely supportive and I can't thank them enough for their patience and their guidance, especially my coach Ewan Burnett. This weekend was a good one in terms of a race finish, something which I was keen to do both for the team and myself. I can now go in to the winter break with confidence and look to come back strong in 2016.

Thank you to the team and my crew for all they've done this year, there have been some long nights for them at times. Thank you also to the support staff within the team for looking after us in every way possible and finally the biggest thank you to my family and personal sponsors for their patience and guidance this year."
