Bem-see Anderson's Damp Dominance - BMCRC Cadwell 14/15 Sept '13

After initially qualifying in 3rd place for the EDI Asia F400, the track was then drenched in oil from another bike, resulting in a three hour track cleaning process. All riders then had to restart the qualifying session, in which Nick Anderson struggled to a 13th place start for the first of three races on the slippery Cadwell surface.

In race one, after sluggishly pulling off the line, Nick made his way to 6th position on RMKD's number one Kawasaki ZXR 400 before the race was red flagged after 4 laps. Sunday saw Nick finish in 4th position in the first race of the day, which was won by Paul Ellercker, also on an RMKD tuned ZXR 'rocket'. In the final race of the weekend, team principle Roger Middleton made a last minute decision to switch to Nick's own RMKD built ZXR 400, as rain started to fall, which turned out to be a race winning call. After 3 laps of swapping places for the lead, Anderson retained the position to take his maiden Bemsee win on the beautiful machine.
