Team Colin Appleyard/Macadam Racing members were back in action at Brands Hatch last weekend after a three-week break.

In action was Brechin youngster Ryan Watson racing in the 125 cc championship.

Ryan did not have a very good qualifying session and found himself eleventh on the grid.

However, keen to make amends he made a blinding start, his best of the season so far, and was quickly up to fourth place.

Unfortunately, when dropping into the Graham Hill bend on the lap three the crankshaft broke, spitting Ryan off, luckily uninjured.

Once again Ryan showed what great potential he has, and he is maturing as a rider all the time.

Next up for the team is the August Bank Holiday meeting at Cadwell Park.
