Winner of the first Moto1 powers to victory at Donington Park - Oct 31st 2004

    David Knight blitzed all-comers as he grabbed victory in the inaugural Moto1 event at Donington Park on Sunday.

    Knight ­ runner-up in this yearıs World Enduro Championship ­ was unstoppable as he converted Saturdayıs overnight lead into overall victory with third place in Sundayıs trial followed by runner-up finishes in the motocross and supermoto events to clinch the title and £6000 first prize.

    I canıt believe Iıve managed to take the win, said Knight. I knew Iıd have a good chance ­ only because Iıve a lot of experience on trials and I knew some of the others wouldnıt have any experience.

    I was pleased to score in all eight events, especially the road racing, and to win the first ever Moto1 makes me feel very proud. This event will grow and grow and will be very big in years to come.

    Knight ran out winner by 25 points from fellow enduro rider Ady Smith while Wayne Braybrookıs 13th place finish in Sundayıs road race handed him three points and was enough for him to leapfrog Scotsman David Campbell to clinch third place.

    Leighton Haigh won both supermoto races to take fifth place overall and Tom Sykes was double victor in the road racing to end the Moto1 weekend in sixth place.
