Mark Wilkinson Concludes 2013 Season with Gearlink Kawasaki

Posted:

Australian Mark Wilkinson concluded his 2013 season with the British Gearlink Kawasaki with the final Pirelli Superstock 600cc round held at Brands Hatch last weekend as part of the British Superbike Championship.

Wilkinson who switched to the Kawasaki outfit mid way through the season has shown impressive results at each outing leading into the Brands Hatch finale scoring championship points in every single race.

Brands Hatch threw up some tougher conditions for Wilkinson however as he experienced his first race aboard the Kawasaki in wet conditions. Though being in position to continue his points scoring run, some mistakes early in the race left him battling mid pack and with the conditions making it near impossible to pass, the Aussie finished the final race of the year just out side the point.

"That was my first race on the Kawasaki in the wet and I got a good start but made a few mistakes on the first lap and lost a lot of places." Wilkinson explained. "I was stuck in a group and with the conditions being so bad it was hard to make any moves.

"I've managed to score points in every round this year and would have been nice to finish the season in the points but it just wasn't to be.

"I would like to say a huge thank you to all the Gearlink Kawasaki team for making me feel at home and welcoming me into their team like they did. Also to everyone back home in Australia for their support it's much appreciated. Roll on 2014," he concluded.

Team Manager Michael de Bidaph was delighted to have the Aussie as part of his outfit in the second half of the British season.

"Mark made a few mistakes in the opening laps but he has never ridden the bike in a wet race before and up to now he has been in the points at every race." Bidaph commented regarding the final race of the year.

"He's been an absolute delight to have him in our team; he fitted in really well and rode very hard and always willing to learn," he added.

At this point in time Wilkinson has not announced his plans for the 2014 race season.
