The big names of Supermoto will be turning their attention to the second
round of the Vivaldi British Supermoto Championship at the Karting North
East, Warden Law Motorsport Centre in Sunderland this bank holiday Monday.
Returning from their respective World Supermoto Championship campaigns are
Matt Winstanley, Christian Iddon, Sam Warren and Belgian ace Fred Fiorentino
who will be fighting for race wins along with British Championship regulars
Mathew Pope and Ady Smith.
The Brit contingent of Winstanley, Iddon and Warren are all currently in the top 15 on the world scene in their respective classes with Iddon the best of the bunch lying in 5th place in S1.
The first round at the Lydd International circuit in Kent proved to be an
absolute thriller with Winstanley and Fiorentino sharing the spoils. Iddon
stole their thunder in the last race of the day, winning by the narrowest of margins as they crossed the line three abreast.
Up for grabs at each round of the championship is the Vivaldi, "Naturally
Best" Rider of the Day award which comes with a giant cheque for a £1,000.
Lydd winner Warren made the most of it and is now contesting a number of
world championship events as a direct result of the cash injection.
New for the Sunderland round is a Clubman's Trophy for privateers and a
Junior Challenge for the under 15's.
Sunday is scheduled as a practice day with the racing proper getting
underway at 10am on the Monday. For further information visit the
