Michael Rutter and his Isilon MSS Discovery Kawasaki team heads to Snetterton on a high following their double podium at last weekend's North West 200 races.

Rutter secured pole on his Superbike at the prestigious road race and finished third in the second Superbike race and third in the second Supersport race, a class which he doesn't usually contest.

The team hope they can continue their good run of fortune and secure improved results on both machines at the high speed Norfolk circuit.

"The North West was good for us, but now it's back to our main 'work' in the Bennetts British Superbike championship," said a happy Rutter, "Snetterton is a circuit with two big straights so speed is important, but we will see how far we are off from the top guys tomorrow, I guess. I'm hopeful that we can keep plugging away and get further inside the top ten, with some luck! "

His team-mate in the Supersport class Stuart Easton is also hoping for a strong showing and is feeling more confident with his machine. "At the pre-season test at Snetterton we were in the low nines straight away and the weather was far from perfect. To be honest I think we'll be looking at high sevens for a good race pace. The bike has come on a bit since then and after the North West I've got my chin up for this race so we're looking for a good result. The track itself is pretty straightforward, comprising of a big front straight, a back straight and a few corners - that's it! This means it is easy to get dialled in and get set-up really quickly."

Team Owner, Nick Morgan admitted he was pleasantly surprised at how things went at the North West and wants to build on that this coming weekend."We haven't got any major changes for either bike from the North West purely down to time. We're doing some mapping work on the dyno on the Superbike but the Supersport machine is pretty much unchanged. What is important is to keep the momentum going from the results at the North West. We went there not knowing how the bikes would behave, so we were pleasantly surprised," he said, "Speed does help around Snett, but it's not the be-all and end-all as you get Supersport bikes going quicker than Superstockers around there. We will be doing our best to refine what we have over the weekend to get the results we deserve," finished Morgan.

Following the Snetterton race there will be a four-week break in the British championships, although this will still be a busy period for Kawasaki team, as they will be taking part in the Centenary Isle of Man TT races.
