I’m more than happy as my Kawasaki ZX-6 performed phenomenally all season, it wasn’t a walk in the park but I’m pretty happy with four wins out of six starts.”

Reflecting on his time ultra productive time at Wanganui, which also included finishing a fine third in the blue riband Robert Holden memorial feature race, Wellington’s Richardson said:

“That was my last race of the season in New Zealand for me so I had nothing to lose so I pushed the envelope a bit!
