Race ace Newbould impresses
2:30pm Sunday 23rd September 2012 in Sport
MORETON-in-Marsh speedster Josh Newbould is continuing to impress in his first season in motorbike racing.
The 21-year-old bagged two wins in the Bemsee Club EDIasia F400 rookie class on his Kawasaki ZXR400 at Snetterton.
In his first meeting in the championship and only his second time on the bike, Newbould endured a tough start in Norfolk.
Despite qualifying sixth out of 31 riders, he ran off the track twice in the opener and finished 19th. Newbould started better in the next race and grabbed 11th place for third in his class.
The Cotswold rider followed up with his first two class victories on the second day by 12 seconds after finishing sixth overall. He heads to Brands Hatch on September 29 and 30.
