Episode Summary

Hawkspeed_Episode 4
Ahead of race three, team principal Stuart Hicken talks through the origins of the Hawk Kawasaki team, from his own roots in motocross through to the gradual evolution into superbikes, and the team's constant search for riders who can do the bikes justice. The team travel to Oulton Park to continue the challenge of mastering the bikes ahead of the next competitive meeting. A new issue tyre means even more tests have to be done; a process eventually halted by typical British weather. Tensions rise as the tests are cut short and the team retire, instead focusing their thoughts on the coming race. Expectations for a good performance in race three are high - Mallory Park is Hawk Kawasaki's home circuit, and both their competitors and the team themselves expect Glen and Dean to finish high on the leader board. This expectation is unwelcome with Dean who, after race two, finds his forearm muscles continuing to give him hassle. Yet, as the qualifiers begin, the weather holds out and the Hawk team delightfully perform to expectations, snatching front-line positions on the starting grid. But while the weather holds out for the riders, the racetrack does not, and a barrage of red flags means the race keeps stopping. The constant restarts put strain on the tyres and, after several changes, the team's tyre stock is quickly running out, whilst Glen and Dean fear that the constant stopping and starting will lay waste to their great starting positions. With a string of bad luck at their home circuit, the Hawk team worry that they won't perform to expectations, but with the passion of the riders and their thirst for victory, a second podium finish may only be a strong lap away.moreless
