Raybon roars off

MORPETH-BASED SGR Racing’s new rider got his Sunoco British 125 GP Championship off to an excellent start by scoring points first time out at the Snetterton 300.

Ian Raybon, from the Isle of Man, only joined the team last week but immediately gelled with the friendly squad.

He qualified in 13th place and finished the race in that position, although he did well to recover positions after being forced wide on the opening lap and later running off the track across the grass.
