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 will all entrust EBC Brakes Racing’s GPFAX track/race brake pads and X-Series floating discs on their Kawasaki race bikes.

After a first round in Spain, the next two rounds of the roadshow saw the boys heading back to the UK, competing at both Oulton Park and Donington Park, where they were able to secure more points in their 2024 campaigns.

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

Round 2 – Oulton Park 

“The G&S Racing Kawasaki team travelled to Cheshire for round two of the British Supersport Championship which took place at Oulton Park over the bank holiday weekend. Sam Laffins and Asher Durham both scored points, with Jorel Boerboom narrowly missing out by one position in the feature race.

“With Oulton Park being a fast and technical circuit, and with a full grid of 40 riders to contend with, the riders needed to be on top form to get up into the points. All three safely completed qualifying and took their places on the grid for the start of Sunday’s sprint race.

“Sam Laffins began from the eighth row and worked his way through to take up 17th place overall, holding that position to the chequered flag. But two riders ahead were in the GP2 class which elevated Laffins to 15th, to claim a championship point in the main race. Asher Durham also began from the eighth row and rode well to claim 18th place at the flag. Meanwhile, Jorel Boerboom was run off the track by another rider and was disqualified after having to ride over the grass to rejoin. Unfortunate as not a lot he could have done.

“In Monday’s feature race – run over 16 laps – Sam Laffins was up into the points on the first lap but he was unfortunate to tangle with another rider and crash at Hizzy’s on lap two – his race over. Asher Durham started from the seventh row and was soon up to 14th place on lap two. He continued to make progress and completed the race in 10th place to pick up six championship points, bringing his total haul to 16 and placing him 12th in the rider standings. Jorel Boerboom had the disadvantage of having to start the race from way back on the 10th row but he persevered and worked his way forward to complete the race in 16th place – just one away from the points.

“Team manager Tom Fisher: ‘It was an eventful weekend but also very productive for the team. Sam scored a point in the first race and would have easily added to his haul if he hadn’t crashed but it wasn’t to be. Asher rode well and once again took 10th place in the feature race. If he could improve his qualifying position, he has the pace to run with the top six. It was unfortunate that Jorel was forced to start from so far back, but he made up 14 places from his grid position and was only one place away from the points. I have to thank all our loyal sponsors and supporters for their continued input and the team who have worked hard to keep the bikes in pristine condition all weekend.’”

Round 3 – Donington Park

“Next up on the calendar was Donington Park. It was a difficult weekend for G&S Racing Kawasaki here, with no points scored in this highly competitive class, but a strong performance for Jorel Boerboom who was the highest placed of the three riders with a 16th and 17th place in the two races. Starting from row six in the sprint race, the Dutch rider had a good run through the midfielders to cross the finish line in 16th place. In the feature race on Sunday he started from row eight and came through to finish in a strong 17th place just outside the points.

“Asher Durham started race one from the 10th row and fought his way through the field to take the chequered flag in 19th position. In race two, he once again started from the 10th row and was beginning to make his move forward making up five places on the opening lap. On lap three he was up to 22nd but was unfortunate to suffer a front-end crash at Melbourne on lap four – his race over.

“Sam Laffins completed his qualifying for a sixth row start to the first race and made great progress up to 16th on the opening lap. He had the pace for a points finish but it wasn’t to be. He suffered a crash at Melbourne on lap four, losing the front and sliding over the grass unhurt. Because of the non finish he was placed on row 13 in 37th place for the feature race and had an enormous task to make progress up into the points. But he battled on to make up an amazing 18 places to take the flag in 19th position.

“Team manager Tom Fisher: ‘It’s been a difficult weekend for us at Donington, I think after the success of the first two rounds we have finally come down to earth with a bump. We just couldn’t find a good setting all weekend, the hot track conditions didn’t help us and we just couldn’t find the pace. But we will persevere and develop throughout the season. Thanks to our loyal sponsors and supporters for their continued input and also to our team members who have worked tirelessly over the weekend to put three pristine bikes on the grid. Onwards and upwards to the next round at Knockhill over the weekend of June 14-16.’”
