YOUNG Gifford racer Lewis Rollo set about breaking records again at the weekend, becoming the youngest ever Scottish Champion in the Lightweight class, while breaking the Knockhill lap record along the way.

The youngster was allowed special dispensation from the SACU at the start of the season to race, despite being 13 years old for the first round.

Rollo is also racing in the Thundersport GB series on the Ian Newton-supplied IN Competition Aprilia RRV450GP bike. He was given a pass from Newton to miss the Mallory Park round this weekend.

It was by no means an easy championship for Rollo to win. Having missed round two at Knockhill back in April due to his commitments to IN Competition and the Thundersport series, he also had to come back from injury more recently, where he broke two ribs and punctured his lung in a collision in Anglesey.

Rollo had to fight hard right to the end of the championship, with Craig Shirlaw, his closest rival throughout the year, only 10 points behind them.

Rollo said: “We had a really good weekend at Knockhill with some really good races with Craig. We managed to lift the title and get the Knockhill lap record, so we are really happy!

“I came second in the Scottish Championship races and I won two of the Knockhill club races and came second in the third race, but me and Craig were really pushing and had some awesome races!"
