NMT No Limits Kawasaki Head To Norfolk For Round Six

NMT No Limits Kawasaki head into Norfolk for Round Six of the Pirelli National Superstock Championship filled with belief that the corner has turned after a confidence boosting previous round in Scotland.
 
Both Jordan Weaving and Nick Anderson in the Stock 600 class finished in the top eight while James East pressed the fastest riders in the Stock 1000 class before succumbing to a technical issue. Although results weren’t as good as anticipated, the team left Knockhill with a renewed positivity that even better times are just around the corner at Snetterton this weekend.
 
The Team Green outfit had an impressive outing for differing reasons the last time they visited the three-mile circuit. Following the last visit to Snetterton in June 2015, Jordan Weaving and Nick Anderson picked up their best qualifying and race results at that point of the season with Weaving finishing just outside the podium places and Anderson pushing the top ten hard on the ZX-10R and as a result, hopes are high for even better returns at the former RAF Airfield this time out.
 
“We had teething problems at the start of the weekend at Knockhill in the last round but in the race we showed our potential to run at the front, so this weekend we need to quickly focus again and hit the ground running.” Anderson said.
 
“I enjoy riding the place, the last time I was there on the 600 I think I finished fifth but my laptimes were good enough for a third place finish, so I need to get things together and make sure we’re on it right from the first session.  I just need a solid result now and if I can build on what happened at Knockhill and I’ll definitely be looking for a top five finish for sure. If I can bring back some silverware I’ll be chuffed so if there’s a chance to make an impact and get on the podium then that’s the aim.”
 
It will be the first competitive visit to Snetterton in NMT No Limits colours for East and he is anticipating a good result after what he says was a big step forward for both him and the team in Scotland despite not finishing the race.
 
“I honestly feel that we would have finished in the top seven if we hadn’t had the problem, I was pushing at the start of the race and I really think we could have been the top Kawasaki.” East said.
 
“That said, I think we turned a bit of a corner at Knockhill. We made the most realistic change that put the bike where it needs to be and allowed us to get the best setting for the grip we need. I think it will prove to be a catalyst for better results, the top six is what we are looking for but from what Knockhill gave us it’s given us more belief that is to come sooner rather than later.
 
“It’s brought the bike into a place where it works much better for us. We still need to do some more work with it to get a little more grip. We’re getting closer to what we want from the bike and now we are making those gradual strides forward which seemed a little more difficult to make before Knockhill.  Previously I needed to be a little more careful with things but after the changes we made at the last round I could push a lot harder and we could see there was a massive improvement. We are in a better place now with the bike and there’s no reason why we can’t move forward now until the end of the season and get the podium finish that all the team’s hard work
