Ian Hutchinson signed off with his final ride on the PBM Kawasaki by taking sixth place in Saturday's Suncity Group Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix.
Hutchinson, who won the race for the first time in 2013 on the Milwaukee Yamaha, is leaving Paul Bird's team to join Northern Ireland outfit Tyco BMW next season.
The Bingley Bullet returned to his top form this year with a hat-trick at the Isle of Man TT, winning the Superstock race on the PBM Kawasaki and claiming a double on Keith Flint's Team Traction Control Yamaha in the Supersport class.
The 36-year-old had been lying in third place but was bumped back to sixth in the closing stages as Michael Rutter, John McGuinness and Gary Johnson caught and passed the Yorkshire rider.
Scotsman Jimmy Storrar was also riding one of Bird's Kawasaki machines and finished in 12th place.
Team owner Bird, who has switched to Ducati for the 2016 MCE British Superbike Championship with Shane 'Shakey' Byrne and Ulsterman Glenn Irwin leading the charge, said: “After winning last year [with Stuart Easton], we were hoping for a repeat performance but it wasn't to be.
“I'm pleased that both riders brought the bikes home safely and whilst the results might not have been what we wanted, we will still have a little celebration I'm sure.
“That race brings to the end our association with Kawasaki which we have had since 2009 so we now look forward to working with Ducati and our valued sponsors from next season onwards and to try to win back the MCE British Superbike Championship as our main priority.”
