“Donington was another very good round for the E-Lites Kawasaki team and Tim continues to look very comfortable on the ZX6R. In the four rounds so far he has surpassed all his goals and continues to improve each time he gets on the bike, and although there are still areas we need to improve on, I am happy with how the season is progressing. A second podium in four races is testimony to how hard the team is working and we will continue to strive for more wins.“

”I am happy to have secured a second podium but disappointed not to have won the race. All three of us wanted the win and to be fair the racing clean and great fun. The E-Lites Kawasaki is working so well and my team got it spot on with the changes to the rear suspension that I felt I should have done better, but another good points haul means we are still in a good position in the overall standings. Another bonus is that we come back to Donington in September and get another shot at getting onto the top step of the podium.”

They also give supper grippy stopping power in all weather conditions during their championship races. The friction level of the GPFA brake pads is very high and is all because of the design and the technology that goes into producing the sintered formula, giving them the ability them to ‘heat cycle’, warm up and cool down. This enables them the super durability and longevity needed during Superbike racing. Read more about GPFA sintered race only brake pads here!
