Lewis Cornish, 16, put his previous weekend's problems behind him at the Easter round of the NORAsport National Supemoto Cham-pionships held at Three Sisters Circuit, Lancs.

He took delivery of his freshly MWR refurbished race bike minutes before the first race and the two-times British junior champion posted a blistering time to grab pole position. A faultless display in race one gave him the first of three weekend victories which saw him take the top step of the NORAsport National 250 podium.

This somewhat made up for his disappointing start to the British Championships where a major mechanical problem meant the sport's youngest ever champion lost out on vital points to his main rivals.

Cornish is now in his forth year of supermoto competition and next month he faces a hectic race schedule. At Blyton Raceway in Lincolnshire he hopes to build on his previous NORAsport success. The following week is a double header British Supermoto Championship held at Lydden Hill and Lydd International Raceway in Kent, but the really big event of the month is the British Supermoto Grand Prix at Mallory Park.

Cornish is hoping to showcase his considerable talents in front of the world's big teams and take in further international Grand Prix events throughout the 2009 season.
