After seven months of intense racing it all comes to a climactic finale this weekend at Brands Hatch.

After seven months of intense racing it all comes to a climactic finale this weekend at Brands Hatch.

The iconic circuit has witnessed the best racers that almost all the disciplines of motorsport has to offer and on Sunday more names will be etched into the history books as the MCE British Superbike and Pirelli National Superstock Championships finish the season in Kent.
 
For NMT No Limits Kawasaki there is an opportunity for the team to retain the Superstock 600 title that was won last year by Mason Law as Jordan Weaving heads to Brands with a 21-point lead over his nearest Championship rival after winning last time out at Donington Park.  It was his sixth successive podium finish with four of those being victories, however at Brands Hatch this weekend, Weaving only needs to finish in the top 12 to ensure that his name is engraved on the Championship trophy.

But the softly spoken young man is far from taking things for granted before round 12 gets underway.
 
 “While we have a good lead, it’s not all over and neither I or any of the team will even consider it that way.” Weaving said.
 
“It’s about finishing the race in the place we need to but I’m relaxed with things to be honest. It’s different to the start of the season where maybe I thought about things a little too much early on, I possibly listened to the chatter about the Championship too much and was thinking too long term and maybe as a result I was tense. But with the help of the team and chatting to my manager Jono Leach, we reflected and refocussed that if there was a chance to go for the win on any particular weekend and I felt 100% to do so then that’s what I’d do.
 
“We don’t look too far ahead about what may or may not be. I’ll let other people think about what could happen, there’s still a round of the Championship to go so we are all focussed on the job which is still in front of us.”Weaving is focussed on coming through this weekend to clinch the Championship at the historic track in Kent
 
Cameron Lee heads to Brands Hatch looking to end the season on a high, after joining the team just before the trip to Cadwell Park in August the young man from Leicestershire’s confidence has grown with each race meeting. His positive outlook was epitomised in his highest point scoring finish last time out at Donington in tricky conditions, so Lee says his aim is to push even further up the field at Brands Hatch before turning his attentions to 2017.
 
“I really like it at Brands, it’s a wicked track.  But the main plan for me will be to get a really good qualifying, we hope to qualify in the top 15 because we know we have the race pace to run with the top ten. At the last round at Donington, my most consistent batch of laptimes would have put me in there.” Lee said.
 
“We just need to get that fast lap in to reflect the amount of work we are putting in, unfortunately that didn’t happen at the last round and the progression we made up to that point.  I’ve tested at Brands and worked hard in the gym to be as fit as I can be, so as I say if I can get that good qualifying lap in then I have a really good chance to get my best finish of the season.
“Hopefully I’ll be here next year, I’m so grateful for the opportunity that Paul and the team has given me to ride for NMT No Limits Kawasaki but we’ll focus on what’s here and now at the moment then look forward to next season.”
 
Also this weekend, Leon Jeacock, takes to the track with the team for the first time on the Kawasaki ZX-10R at Brands. The rider who turned 28 just over a week ago is looking for a belated birthday celebration where he is looking to at least consolidate his top ten in the standings but he’ll be pushing for a possible 8th place finish in the Superstock 1000cc Championship.
 
Jeacock has been one of the most consistent point scoring riders since things got underway back in April at Silverstone, only missing out on a point scoring finish three times,  so he has high hopes that the final outing of 2017 is to be his most fruitful.
 
“It’s been great to come into a team with so much knowledge who will just allow me to get on the bike and concentrate on that. I’ve enjoyed riding in my own team but this was an opportunity that I couldn’t miss out on.” He said.
 
“I’ve proven that I can run consistently in this Championship and with the extra help things could really move to the next level.  I’m coming into the team with a blank page on a new bike, I’m here to write my own story. I’ve had so much fun testing ahead of this weekend, I love the ZX-10R it seems to suit me, people have said I look comfortable on it and the team behind me are fantastic.
 
“There’s been no pressure put on me by the team but I put pressure on myself, there’s no reason that we can’t run in the top ten at least. I’m expecting my best result of the year here and I’m gunning for that 8th spot in the Championship.  My aim is to be the front running Kawasaki ZX-10R on Sunday afternoon, it’s as simple as that.”
