BRAUNTON bike racer Harry Sellwood, 18, finished fifth in the senior group at the British Schoolboys Motorcycle Association finals at Culham Park in Oxford at the weekend.

This was the biggest event on the BSMA calendar, with the top 40 schoolboy riders from each group from around the country gathering to battle it out on a long and difficult track.

The event was held over two days, with five races being held, and due to poor weather, the track becoming even more difficult on sodden ground.

Harry, who rides a Honda 250S, had to ride a series of qualifying rounds over the past six months leading up to the semi-finals and finals.
