Newtownabbey’s Nikki Coates (below) goes in the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship at Brands Hatch this weekend on the Moto Breakers ZX10 Kawasaki alongside team-mate and ex-MotoGP rider, Danny Webb.

In his pre-season tests at Brands and Oulton he was well on the pace.

Nikki was in good form when he said: “The tests went well. We haven’t had a lot of time on the bike but I was happy that my times were slightly better than Danny’s, especially at Brands where the opening race takes place.

“It is a new class for me and I am looking forward to it a lot.”
