Richard Kerr has excellent opening weekend on return from injury

Kilmacrennan's Richard Kerr had an excellent weekend at the opening round of the Dickies Supersport BSB championship at Silverstone.

Kerr had a fantastic 7th place in Saturday's Sprint race and followed that up on Sunday with another top finish claiming 8th position.

It was a fantastic way to open his 2019 account after missing valuable track time after a fall in Spain last month on the opening day of testing put the young Kilmacrennan rider out of action for a few weeks and injured his wrist and back.

They were Kerr's best results to date in his second season in the Supersport class which is without doubt one of the most competitive classes there is.

A great result for the team and Richard who turned just 19 this weekend.

The team now head to Oulton Park in two weeks time where Richard will be hoping to get another strong run for the team.
