Tyson And Team Ready To Fight After Thrills And Spills At Brands Hatch

TSINGTAO WK Racing Kawasaki boss Dave Tyson has reflected on a weekend of extreme highs and lows at the opening round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship – and says his squad is ready to shake things up at the next round as they prepare to test tomorrow.

The team – which is the biggest squad in the BSB paddock this season – celebrated a lights-to-flag victory in the opening round of the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship with Danny Buchan who dominated the weekend.

Buchan had looked in control all weekend, topping the timesheets in all free practice and qualifying sessions to take pole for Monday’s race. Getting the perfect start he led all the way, eventually winning by more than 3.5seconds to take the championship lead. The team’s second Superstock 1000 rider Kyle Wilks had a tougher day at the office, but battled on to cross the line 28th.

But the it wasn’t was the best start to the British Superbike Season for the team after BSB rider Jon Kirkham crashed on Sunday in the wet and was ruled unfit to qualify. The Derbyshire rider lined-up on the grid for Easter Monday’s first race, and rode to 21st place, but was still suffering from the spill the previous day and the team decided to pull out of the second race.

Over in the Motorpoint British Supersport Championship, roads man Dan Cooper impressed with two solid points finishes as he continues his preparation for the road racing season. Cooper took a 10th in Race One and a 14th in the second, in a very impressive return to short circuits after two years away.

In the Pirelli National Superstock 600 Championship, youngster Ben Godfrey had good start to his 2014 campaign, consistently running in the top eight during free practice and qualifying before qualifying eighth for Monday’s race where he finished seventh.

Dave Tyson said: “It’s been an up and down start, we had really great results with Danny Buchan, but these were balanced by the bad luck for Jon. But we can’t moan about it, we’ve got to move on.

“Danny was brilliant all weekend. He just went out there and did what he does best. He came under no pressure whatsoever in that race, it was his from the start and no-one could touch him. He did what we knew he could do, he controlled the race and he was full of confidence all weekend.

“Jon just got unlucky. He had that crash and suffered some concussion which stopped him qualifying. He went out and did Race One and used it as a bit of a test but we decided to pull him from the second and instead concentrate on looking ahead. We’re testing at Oulton this Friday so we can use that time to get back up to speed so he’s ready to come out fighting at the second round.

“In Supersport, Dan was very impressive. It’s two years since he’s raced on the short circuits and he’s riding the Supersport bike which we are running on the roads. He’s a very talented rider and these two results show just what he’s capable of. He’s going to be very strong when we get on the roads.”

“Ben had a good start, he was up there all weekend and we know there’s still a lot more to come from him and with Kyle we had a few issues but we know what we need to work on there and we’re making a few changes within the team to help his progress ready for Oulton Park.

“It was never going to be easy running five bikes across four classes but everyone has been working hard and we think we can make more progress at the test so we’re ready to fight at the next round.”

*The Tsingtao WK Racing Kawasaki team will be back out for Round Two of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship at Oulton Park in Cheshire over the weekend May 3-5, 2014.
