Stanair have been proud to support a whole host of local sporting teams and individuals, with some spanning a number of years. One particular individual, motorcross racer Lewis Huckerby, has been supported by Stanair for over 10 years, and has a very exciting season in ahead of him.
Lewis was first supported by Stanair back in 2007, when he was just 7 years old. Naturally talented in his field, Lewis has had huge successes from the moment he began racing. Working his way up through various races and championships, the star rider finished last season on the ultimate high as the 250 Four Stroke Champion.
This season, however, marks a change in competitions. Now 18, Lewis is now competing in adults races. A new league of racing brings a new bike too, going up to 450 Four Stroke. New competitors and a more powerful bike may pose as a challenge to some, but Lewis, however, has taken it all in his stride. Competing in the Kensworth Motorcross Under-35s, Lewis has had a strong start to the season, taking overall 4th place on his first racing weekend! With such a promising start, a podium position at the end of the year could well be on the cards.
“We’ve been really proud to watch Lewis grow and progress to where he is today,” said Martin Wall, Director at Stanair, “we’re very impressed with how well he’s taken to this season’s new challenges, and we look forward to hearing more updates as the year goes on.”
We’d like to wish Lewis all the best for this season.
