Tim Hastings joins MWR Kawasaki in National Superstock 600 class

'After a winter of uncertainty and not knowing if I'd even be racing at all in 2012, I am really pleased to have reached a deal with Mark and the MWR team' - Tim Hastings
Tim Hastings will ride for MWR Kawasaki in the Metzeler National Superstock 600 Championship this season.

Hastings, who won the 2008 Academy Cup in the British 125GP class before switching to the Superstock 600 series in 2010, said he was thrilled by the deal following a 'winter of uncertainty' over his plans.

“After a winter of uncertainty and not knowing if I'd even be racing at all in 2012, I am really pleased to have reached a deal with Mark (Webster) and the MWR team.

“When I raced for them at the last two rounds of 2011 it just felt like I belonged in the team so doing a full season with them is mega,” he said. “Results can never be guaranteed but one thing is certain, I will be giving it my all at every round.”

Team owner Webster was equally pleased to be competing in the championship this season after admitting he considered taking a year out from the sport.

“I am so pleased that we have been able to put a deal together with Tim for this year and still be involved in the series, especially as it was looking like we would be taking a sabbatical in 2012.

“Tim ran with MWR for the last two rounds of 2011 and we were all very impressed with the way in which he went about his racing, and I am sure he will be a front-runner this season for us,” added Webster.

“We have not yet ruled out the possibility of running another rider in either the Superstock 600 or Superstock 1000 classes, but we will just wait and see what materialises over the next few weeks.”

Congratulations Tim... I hope you have a great season and can fight for the championship!!! I've still got Tim's old Scottish winning 125cc bike in my garage also the ex Robbie Stewart and Chris Jones bike! It'll be worth a bit more if Tim wins... joking aside, I can't wait to see how Tim gets on this season!
