Motorpoint British Supersport

 

The Gearlink Kawasaki team experienced the highs and lows of racing this weekend at round four of the Motorpoint British Supersport Championship at the Snetterton 300 circuit. Glenn Irwin came from pit lane in race one to secure a fantastic fifth place and gained his first win of the season in race two on Sunday. Ben Wilson really had a tough weekend at Snetterton and was plagued with technical issues throughout the weekend; he crashed out of race one and starting from the back in race two and unfortunately crashed out again. Luke Hedger riding the satellite Gearlink Kawasaki bike, was sixth in race one and secured his first ever British Supersport podium with third in race two.

Luke Hedger was running the Gearlink Kawasaki colours but as a satellite team, he had a very strong and consistent weekend. He qualified in sixth for race one and worked hard to hold his position at the end of the 10 laps. For race two he started from sixth place again, he struggled off the start and dropped to seventh after lap one, he worked his way back up to fifth and after the incident between the front runners he picked up his first Supersport podium with third.

 

Luke Hedger - "This weekend couldn't have gone any better, I was getting faster and faster in every session and I'm just so happy with the results. I couldn't believe it when I crossed the line and I'd secured my first Supersport podium. I would just like to thank everyone who has helped to get me here and get on the podium I really appreciate it."
