Motorsport Memories with Lewis Kerr
Lewi Kerr has shared tales about his love of superbikes, motocross and speedway after taking a motorsport-based trip down memory lane.
The Eastbourne rider recalled some of his favourite motorsport memories in the latest instalment of Adrian Flux’s sporting series.
Kerr discussed watching British Superbikes at Cadwell Park, meeting his motocross hero James ‘Bubba’ Stewart in America and landing his first speedway maximum with Newcastle Diamonds in 2013.
The Norfolk racer, who also rides for King’s Lynn in the Premiership, said: “Speedway has been a massive miss this season and it feels like something in my life is missing, which obviously it is. I’ve managed to just get in whatever meetings have been going.
“It’s been a real tough season. I’ve managed to have plenty of work with one of my sponsors, Norfolk Cabins, so I’m very thankful for them. I’m looking forward to hopefully things picking up and we get going next season.”
The 30-year-old scored 12 points to reach the final of the only pre-pandemic meeting, the Ben Fund Bonanza, at Scunthorpe on March 14. He then took part in three behind-closed-doors events at Belle Vue’s National Speedway Stadium scoring paid 11 and 10, twice, in the process.
