BRECHIN biker Ryan Watson turned in an impressive performance in front of a massive 50,000 crowd at Brands Hatch the weekend before last.
As a member of Team Colin Appleyard/Macadam Racing the youngster was keen to finish the 2011 Championship season on a high note.
Competing in the 125 Championship race, having qualified ninth, Ryan followed his manager’s instructions to get off to a good start.
Indeed, he led his race for half a lap before being pegged back. However, he rode strongly and tagged on to the leading group to eventually cross the line in sixth place.
Summing up the racing season, Robin Appleyard commented: “We’ve had a good season with three young riders all with massive potential. Ryan’s not yet fourteen, yet impressed in in his first season at this level.
“If he continues to progress I can see a great future for him in the sport.”
