G&S Racing currently supports three riders in the British Supersport Championship

Following campaigns within the Pirelli National Superstock and Junior Superstock championships with their duo of riders in 2023, G&S Racing Kawasaki is assisting three riders entering BSB’s British Supersport Championship throughout 2024.

Jorel Boerboom, Sam Laffins and Asher Durham all entrust EBC Brakes Racing’s GPFAX track/race brake pads and X-Series floating discs on their Kawasaki race bikes.

The fourth round of the season took the outfit up to Scotland’s Knockhill Circuit, where all riders managed to secure impressive points, despite the unpredictable weather conditions.

Read how they got on in the team’s own words below…

Round 4 – Knockhill

“The long trip to Knockhill in Scotland proved productive for the G&S Racing Kawasaki team as all three riders scored points in each of their two races in round four of the British Supersport championship.

 “The weather played its part in the weekend, with wet free practice and then dry conditions for qualifying and race one on Saturday and very wet conditions on Sunday for race two.

“After a long delay because of a thunderstorm, the riders lined up for the start of the Sprint race on Saturday, with Asher Durham on row four, Sam Laffins on row six and Jorel Boerboom on row eight. All three riders made good progress over the 18 laps and all three finished in the points; Durham in 10th, Laffins 14th and Boerboom 15th.

“On Sunday the weather deteriorated throughout the day and by the time the Supersport riders took their places on the starting grid the track was wet and it was raining. But it didn’t appear to affect the three G&S Kawasaki riders who rode well in the dire conditions.

“Sam Laffins had a race-long battle with Carter Brown, with the pair exchanging places throughout the 22 laps. But he finally managed to make a pass stick on the penultimate lap and went on to complete the race in 12th position. 

“Asher Durham was running in 10th place during the early laps and eventually settled into 11th, which he held with ease through the final few laps, taking his points haul from Knockhill to 12 – he is now the highest placed regular Kawasaki rider in the championship.

“Jorel Boerboom started from the seventh row in 20th position and was up to 17th on the first lap. He continued to make progress through the field and once again completed the race in the points in 14th place.”

“Team manager Tom Fisher – ‘That was a perfect set of results and I am delighted. For all three riders to finish both races in a point scoring position in such difficult conditions is something I didn’t think could happen. Asher once again broke into the top 10 with Sam and Jorel not that far behind him. Knockhill is a difficult circuit at the best of times but in the horrendous weather conditions it was even more so. Sam crashed in morning warm-up which caused a lot of damage to the bike but the team did a brilliant job in getting him back out there in time for the race. The only gripe I have is that they could improve their qualifying positions but all in all it was a great effort from them. Grateful thanks to our team and sponsors for their continued support.’”
