Discovery Kawasaki hungry for victories
30 April 2004
Following a successful weekend at Snetterton, the MSS Kawasaki British Supersport team are looking forward to the fourth round this weekend held at Oulton Park.
The team's Pere Riba has taken two fourth place finishes before adding a first podium finish with third place last Sunday at Snetterton. Riba sits fourth in the Supersport championship, just nine points adrift of the lead.
“We've put together a professional start to the season, now it's time to look at winning,” reckons Riba who narrowly missed out on victory at Snetterton.
Riba adds: “I'm told Oulton Park will suit my style so I'm really keen to get there and see how the ZX-6RR performs. We've done very little work to the motor so I was pleased with the top speed at Snetterton last week hopefully that¹s a good sign for the rest of the year.”
MSS Discovery team-mate Rob Frost heads for Oulton Park looking to repeat his fourth place finish of 2003 at the demanding, 2.7-mile circuit.
“Oulton Park is a great, flowing circuit and one I've enjoyed success on in the past,” recalls Frost. “I'll be looking to put in a strong qualifying performance and hopefully run with the front group in Monday's race.”
Team owners Stuart Simmonds and Nick Morgan are confident their Kawasaki stars can compete for victories in Monday¹s races.
Morgan comments: “I think the whole team got a lift at Snetterton, especially with Pere¹s performance in the Supersport race. Pere was in the lead, battling for victory, the machine handled well and we had the top end power there's no reason why we shouldn't be challenging for wins at every round from now on."
