Hastings Re-Signs With Team E-Lites
E-Lites can today announce that we’re continuing our sponsorship with Tim Hastings and Team E-Lites Kawasaki in the British Superbike Support Series.
Tim impressed last year in the Superstock 600 series and delivered Team E-Lites their first race win with victory at Thruxton last April. For the 2014 season, Hastings and the team make the switch to the Supersport Evo class – a faster bike and more races in the season. For this year, Team E-Lites Kawasaki will have two races every weekend, and will once again be following the British Superbikes Calendar.
“Last season was an exciting one and I learned a lot – enough to give me confidence that I can be competitive and mount a challenge for the title this year.” Tim said “The Supersport Evo Championship will have two races live on TV and I intend to take Team E-Lites Kawasaki to the front.”
Tim added to his Thruxton victory last year with a podium at Donington Park. A few issues with the bike in the latter stages of the season saw Hastings slip down the rankings before ending positively, finishing 7th in the Championship overall. The circuits on the calendar this year are identical to the 2013 season, and the whole of Team E-Lites are targeting a number of wins and podiums this season.
E-Lites will again be following Tim’s progress closely throughout the season and turning up at many circuits to report on the races. Keep up to date with live commentaries on twitter.com/ELitesUK.
The season gets underway at Brands Hatch on April 19.
