The EBC-equipped racer is warming up for another BSB season

Northern Ireland-based Andrew Smyth of the Andrew Smyth Racing outfit has successfully competed in BSB’s Superstock 600 series for the last few years.

Riding on a Kawasaki ZX6R 600cc superbike, Smyth uses EBC Brakes Racing’s GPFAX sintered motorsport brake pads (up front) and HH sintered brake pads (on the rear), as well as X-Series floating discs.

During the BSB off-season, he has been competing in various races around Northern Ireland, including the first round of the Ulster Superbike Championship held at Bishopscourt Racing Circuit, Downpatrick, at the end of March, in treacherous conditions.

Directly following on from this race, it was over to Kirkistown Racing Circuit for the second round, which thankfully was set under much more favourable weather.

Andrew’s team explains how he got on here below.

Easter Monday (1 April) – Kirkistown

“I qualified in 3rd position, feeling very comfortable with my wet setup. In Race 1, I got a good start, but dropped a few positions towards the end of the race, finishing in 5th position.

“Race 2 was a similar race, with me taking 5th at the line.”

“My next outing will be Oulton Park for the BSB, in just over three weeks’ time.

“Thanks must go to both of the organising clubs, marshalls, all track personal for two very well-run events. Not forgetting Dad and Krissy for keeping the bike on point, Mum and Jodie for the catering and Ellen on pit board duties.

“Usual shout out to the people that make it happen.”
