FS-3 Racing. Busman’s Holiday and Thank Yous.

With the pressure off and the 2018 British Superbike Championship behind us, it was time for the team to head off for some end of season fun. Danny to Ireland for the Sunflower Trophy Races at Bishopscourt and Lee to Mallory Park for the Race of the Year. Lee Jackson. ZX-10RR Kawasaki Superstock. Race of […]

Round Twelve. Kent. Soggy Ending.

To the final round of the 2018 Bennetts British Superbike Championship on the full GP loop layout at Brands Hatch. Interesting weather forecast – heatwave, hurricane or storm? All four of our riders were in attendance and hoping to sign-off the season with some strong performances. The race schedule included a superbike ‘triple-header’. That meant […]

Round Eleven. Holland. Toughing It Out.

TT Circuit Assen, the Cathedral of Speed, as they like to call it. Fantastic track and the best facilities of the year. Ferry and plane trips to get the team to North Holland. Decent weather forecast too. Only the superbike to concentrate on. In the back of our minds, the main concern for the weekend […]

Round Ten. Cheshire. One of those Days.

Despite just missing out on getting Danny into the Showdown, the team was in good spirits as we headed North to Oulton Park. Danny’s luck has turned since he was nurfed off at Thruxton so we were looking for a return to our early season form. Lee would be looking for another superstock 1000 podium […]

Round Nine. Northamptonshire. Small Margins.

All eyes on Danny. No pressure then. Following the muddle at MotoGP which saw the races cancelled when the re-laid surface led to a waterlogged track, sensible administrative considerations meant the circuit owners pointed the BSB event to their national circuit layout. Just five corners and 55-second lap didn’t find favour in some quarters, but […]

Round Eight. Lincolnshire. Undulations.

First, a quick update on where things stand after round seven at Thruxton. Danny is in contention for the top six, end of season, Superbike Showdown. Lee is now fully at home on his Kawasaki ZX10-RR superstock bike having almost won his race. So, off to the picturesque Cadwell Park circuit, deep in the Lincolnshire […]

Round Seven. Hampshire. Swings and Roundabouts.

Interesting fact number one: our three riders have scored points in every single race they have started so far this season. Team consistency! Interesting fact number two: Lee holds the superstock 1000 lap record at Thruxton. Interesting fact number three: Danny has a real chance of making it in to the end of season Superbike […]

Round Six. Kent. Heatwave.

The last time the Brands GP circuit looked quite so scorched and parched was the summer of 1976. I know, I was racing there. I really am that old!! Arriving to set up, the team was still buzzing after our brilliant weekend at Knockhill. Danny’s two superbike podiums and Lee’s strong races had clearly shown […]

Round Five. Scotland. Sunshine and Successes.

What a weekend! Where to start? Three weeks ago actually, when Danny made the long trek from Essex to Fife for a day of testing on his practice bike at the re-surfaced Knockhill circuit. 100 laps covered and the sort of lap times to give a confidence boost. Lee and Matt were also in high […]

Round Four. Norfolk. Points and Podiums.

Blimey. That was a bit of a good weekend for the FS-3 Racing Kawasaki team. It’s been coming, but it’s still nice when it arrives! It all started a few weeks earlier when Danny and Lee had strong runs at the official Snetterton test day. Danny had also tested at Knockhill the week before, so […]

Round Three. Oulton Park. Scorching Cheshire.

What a difference a couple of weeks makes. From cold and wet, to sunburn and sweat! The weather really does make all the difference and brought out a huge crowd to watch some super-close racing. The weather and an official test day at the circuit 10 days earlier meant we should see everyone’s true speed […]

Round Two. Muddy Kent. Brands Hatch Indy Circuit.

A happy team setting up at Brands Hatch, still bathed in the reflected glory of Danny Buchan’s race two performance at Donington Park. Better still, pit boxes are allocated based on championship points scored – so we were in garage 11, up at the posh end! The weather was still an issue. The promised emergence […]

Round One. Spanish Sun turns to Leicestershire Chill.

A week of warm weather testing at the Cartagena circuit in southern Spain got the team dialled in for the new season. Danny Buchan getting comfortable on our Kawasaki Superbike and Lee Jackson getting the feel for the new to him ZX10-RR Superstock 1000 machine. We’d hopped to get Matt Bower out on his Junior […]
