NORTHWICH race ace Connor Behan enjoyed a well-deserved share of the limelight after finishing third at the weekend.
After crashing last time out at Snetterton, the 17-year-old rider from Barnton was determined to prove his doubters wrong in the sixth round of the Relentless British 125GP Championship at Knockhill.
Having qualified in second place overall on the grid, behind championship leader Martin Glossop, Behan got off to a good start and broke away from the main pack.
Glossop crashed out and a solid ride from Behan was enough to claim third place at the Scotland track and 16 championship points – Behan’s best performance of the season so far. He now lies in eighth place overall.
After the race, Behan said: “I feel happier with the bike and my performance. I’m now looking forward to Mallory Park in two weeks, where hopefully I can go a step better.”
Round Seven takes the riders to Mallory Park in Leicestershire between July 17 and 19 where Behan will seek to earn more success and force his way up the 125GP Championship table.
