MOTORSPORT: Great effort at Silverstone

Have your say

BROTHERS Ryan and Ashley Rudd were in inspired form at the British Norasport Supermoto series at Silverstone.

The Team TRM racers placed second overall in their respective races on the Saturday after a string of fine displays.

Ashley – who is the younger of the two – was in fine form, as he roared to three second places in the junior national category.

Up a class into the 250cc nationals, Ryan grabbed a stunning victory in the second of his two outings, backed up by two excellent second places.

On the Sunday, fellow TRM ace Lee Rudd had a mixed bag of results. He was 14th in his first race after being rammed into the fence early on, before taking a super ninth place in the second.

He looked odds-on for another ninth place in the final race, but slipped back to 11th at the finish.

Meanwhile, Kieran, Ryan and Ashley Rudd were in motocross action at Chatteris on the Sunday.

Young prodigy Kieran was tenth overall out of 18 riders, having clinched finishes of tenth, 11th and 13th in his three outings.

As ever, the starlet enjoyed his day and was left hungry for more.

In the big wheel category, Ryan scored a trio of fourth places to place there overall, while Ashley was second in the small wheel section after managing a triple second place.
