The Gimoto riders had a solid weekend at round ten of the British Superbike Championship at Donington Park. The Gimoto riders secured five podiums which included two fantastic wins from Glenn Irwin in the stock 600's and Richard Cooper in the stock 1000's.
Gimoto wearer Gary Mason on the MSS Kawasaki was testing the new rule system for the 2012 season this weekend which saw him take a little adapting too. The new rules for 2012 have been brought in to keep the costs and rider aids under control, restricting the engine tuning and every team will have to run a controlled ECU unit. Mason struggled to run with the front runners but is eager to continue to adapt to the new rules in the view of having an upper hand in 2012.
For only the third time this year Gimoto wearer Ben Wilson found himself off the podium in the second of the British Supersport races on Sunday after securing a solid second place on the Saturday behind Irishman Alistair Seeley.
After loosing his best friend and ex team-mate Ben Gautrey at Cadwell Park, youngster Glenn Irwin was determined on taking a win in the National Superstock 600 race in memory of his friend. He gained a fantastic second place on the Saturday in the revised Oulton Park race and took a stunning win on the Sunday which he dedicated to Ben.
Richard Cooper also took a strong win in the National Superstock 1000 class in what turned out to be a short race after several crashes forced the safety car to come out on the circuit. He now has a 45.5 point lead in the overall Championship standings.
