The Gearlink Kawasaki team took on a big task this weekend running three riders in the Motorpoint British Supersport series with Glenn Irwin, Ben Wilson
and Luke Hedger. The three riders were riding well all weekend and despite Luke not getting any testing before the weekend he was making progress in every session.
Luke Hedger has not ridden a race this season at BSB level and he could not wait to get back out on the Gearlink Kawasaki, the bike he rode in 2014. The team helped him out by putting a third bike out on track and Luke used his time as best he could, trying to get as many laps in as possible. Luke improved throughout the weekend and started the first race from 11th place on the grid. He held his position after lap one and steadily made progress through the field taking a very good sixth position. For race two he was placed in ninth on the grid but was forced to retire to the pit lane after the second warm up lap with a technical problem.
Luke Hedger - "The weekend went pretty well and I'm really glad to be back and my first race was amazing and a good solid sixth place. It was annoying with the second race but I thank the Gearlink Kawasaki team for putting all their efforts into me and trying to fix my bike for race two. I would like to thank all my sponsors, family and everyone who has helped get me back on track this weekend, it means a lot."
