King's Lynn's Lewi Kerr watched from the sidelines as his testimonial event was raced in glorious sunshine.

Aussie ace Sam Masters shone brightest in both the team and individual races as he led his Kangaroos side to victory and then had the edge in the solo final.

It was a triumphant day for Kerr, with a bumper crowd enjoying the action with a star-studded field.

Kerr decided not to ride to play a hands-on role in the organisation of the meeting and saw Richard Lawson lead the Stars side with 10 points as they finished third.

Richie Worrall was a late withdrawal after a crash in practice on Friday but should be fine for the club’s press day on Thursday.

Kerr said: “It’s been a brilliant day from start to finish, I just want thank all the fans for turning out and supporting me, especially those who came far and wide to support the meeting.

“It’s been great to see so many people here, thanks to the riders for taking time out to come and provide some great racing for everybody.
