Local garage owner Keith Hanson took the overall win in his class at the recent British Evo Championship at Asham Wood, near Frome.

Riding to two first place and one second place finish with some stunning bike control and speed, the over 50 rider from Combe Martin claimed an overall victory in defence of his title - which he has held for the last two seasons.

Keith said: “My aim this season is to try and maintain my current form and gain a third championship in a row.

“The season has started well and has motivated me to try and achieve the goal I have set myself.”

Round two of the championship is being held at Milton Motocross Park near Northampton on June 21, so Keith and the team are busy working on his Honda CR500 to prepare for the event.

The team at Hanson’s Garage, Combe Martin are currently looking for sponsorship to assist them in the future, and with all three brothers currently racing at a high level around the country, it could provide the perfect platform for local businesses to enhance their brand nationally.
