NMT No Limits Kawasaki Are Brands Hatch Bound

NMT No Limits Kawasaki Are Brands Hatch Bound

Brands Hatch is the destination for NMT No Limits Kawasaki this weekend who are looking to pick up more valuable points in the third round of the Pirelli National Superstock Championship.
 
Last time out at Oulton Park, there were mixed results in what was a weekend beset with torrential rain, but despite the weather Jordan Weaving raced home in the Superstock 600 race finishing in 3rd place in Cheshire. Meanwhile in the Superstock 1000 race, James East finished in the top ten on his maiden race outing on the Team Green Kawasaki ZX-10R but unfortunately his team-mate Nick Anderson suffered his first DNF of the season. Overall though it left the team with a real direction to go in as they look forward to a fast start this Friday with the aim of it culminating in healthy haul of points by the end of the race meeting on Sunday evening.
 
It’s the first of three visits to the iconic circuit in Kent this season with the fast Brands Hatch Indy track layout used this weekend, the short 1.3mile lap ensures lightening quick laps and a real spectacle for all who will be attendance and watching at home.

Confidence is high ahead of Friday's first free practice session with Weaving anticipating that a good round is ahead of the team. The South African rider who celebrated his 19th birthday in midweek is looking to get the best of presents on Sunday by making a further step up the podium at Brands.
 
“I'm really looking forward to racing again because nothing makes me happier than riding.” He said. “I just hope the weather is better than it was at Oulton Park, things get difficult when it changes so much like it did at Oulton going from wet to dry and wet again.  But even so, Brands is a really good track that is fun to ride.
 
“After that strong result in round two, I'm hoping to improve this weekend. So as always I'm pushing and working hard and if I continue to enjoy riding the bike like I am doing then I’m sure that will come.”
 
James East is focused on his task at a circuit at which he has achieved good results in the past, with a firm goal of bettering his top ten finish last time out on the 1000cc Superstock bike that he says has definite podium potential.
 
“The mission for myself and the team is continuing to develop the ZX-10R as a Superstock bike with an objective of arriving with the settings needed for each circuit, allowing us to generate grip and to achieve both a fast lap time and a podium finish. Paul and the team have done so much to keep things on track and I believe we have come a long way in a relatively short amount of time. Podiums are in the plan for the not to distant future but if it isn’t to be this weekend then we want at least a top eight finish.”
 
East continued: “Brands Hatch is my favourite track, although my best results have come on the GP circuit, I enjoy the Indy Circuit for its sweeping corners and the feel good factor it brings when you get a lap just right.”
 
Nick Anderson heads into round three in positive mood despite results this season not yet matching his expectations. The 24 year old is looking forward to getting his season back on track on Friday as he continues to make steps forward in his burgeoning superstock career.
 
He said:  “Although the results don't show it, things with the bike and team have been progressing nicely. We narrowly missed out on picking up some points at Silverstone in round one and at Oulton conditions worked against us. But despite the little hiccups the team and I continue working tirelessly to ensure our luck changes this weekend.Nick Anderson will be looking to get his season back on track at the Brands Indy circuit
 
“I've never ridden the Indy layout at Brands on the 1000cc bike so I'm looking forward to it. The lap times are always crazily close here because of the nature of the circuit so I'm ready to roll my sleeves up and get stuck in. My goal is to be in a position to score points, then it's all about bringing her home as top Kawasaki, we will see what we can do.”
