Steady start for Caister super moto rider, Lewis Cornish

Team Nameplate Services/DCR Supermoto Elite racer Lewis Cornish made a steady start to the new British Championship season opening round at Silverstone.

Caister youngster Cornish, running his lucky number eight once more, had a busy weekend racing in both the 450 and televised Open Elite classes.

In the 450s he qualified his Dave Clarke-prepared machine in ninth place before taking eighth in race one, followed by ninth in race two and then a more impressive seventh spot in the trophy final – despite clashing with world championship rider Richard Blakeman.
