Six Out Of Six For Lewis

Rednal Raceway on the outskirts of Oswestry was the venue for rounds 9 and 10 of the SSM UK Supermoto Championships and with many miles to cover the Lewis and his team made a 4:00 am start on Saturday morning from their Norfolk base. On arrival at the circuit it was action from the start with the Expert class opening up Saturday’s qualifying sessions. It was soon clear that Nameplate Services/DCR rider Lewis Cornish would be the rider the others would be chasing over the weekends events with Lewis demonstrating his experience gained while running in the top ten of the Elite British Supermoto Championship. The freshly extended off-road section and tight, technical tarmac were to prove a happy hunting ground for the three times British National champion. A truly dominating qualifying put the Norfolk youngster on pole position by over four seconds and he followed this up by an outstanding three straight race wins by the end of day one.
Sunday morning dawned sunny and dry and Lewis faced some much tougher International class competition. However during qualifying Lewis took pole once more by some margin and followed this up by an easy race one win. Race two was a different story though and he had to work hard early in the race to pass and break clear of his main rival to take the chequers in first place. All eyes were on the two main front runners for the final race and Lewis was determined to take a clean sweep of six out of six race wins. Following a fascinating battle in the opening laps he lapped the Rednal circuit at a blistering pace and once again took victory in fine style.
Lewis Commented ‘’I really like this new track as it’s a very technical and the long off-road section is fantastic, it’s just a pity this had to be cut for the last few races due to the dust. I’m pleased I took all six race wins but it wasn’t as simple on Sunday and I had a few battles in the early laps before I upped the pace and made my move to take the entire race wins. Thanks to Carl Long of Hedcamz I can play back the race footage and see where I can be more competitive."

Lewis’ next race is round eight of the televised British Supermoto Championship at Silverstone on September 24-25 closely followed by the World’s largest supermoto event, The ‘Mettet Superbiker’ in Belgium during early October
