Superstock 600 lead for Knox riders at Thruxton

Continuing its excellent start to its first season in the British Junior Superstock 600 motorcycling racing category, the new KNOX protected AP Kawasaki Racing Team came away from the second round at Thruxton on Sunday 18 April with the championship lead. Despite qualifying a lowly 12th on the grid as a result of technical problems, Matt Bilton from West Yorkshire, the team's 20-year-old star rider carved through the pack to fourth place, finishing 2nd after Russo and Coates crashed two laps from the end. The result gives Bilton a 15-point lead in the championship. The British Superstock 600 series is one of the most hotly contested in the national motorcycle racing calendar with more than 70 young riders all keen to make their mark. The new AP Kawasaki Racing Team made a bold move by coming straight into it for 2010 with its three riders – Bilton, Freddie Russo (Brentwood, Essex) and Anthony Haywood (Chesterfield, Derbyshire).

Round 3 takes place at Oulton Park, Cheshire on 1/2/3 May 2010
