Kiwi Jake Lewis wins European Junior Cup

Posted:

The 2013 Pata European Junior Cup delivered a fittingly close and nail-biting finale in the last round at the spectacular Jerez circuit in southern Spain.br The race - and with it, the title - was won Lewis, who took victory after eight laps of the 4.423km Jerez circuit by just 0.036s over his closest championship rival Augusto Fernandez of Spain.

The first eight riders across the line were covered by less than 0.8s, maintaining the European Junior Cup‰Ûªs reputation for remarkably close and utterly compelling racing on evenly matched Honda CBR500R machines.

It was an impressive ride from Lewis, who had to work his way up from 14th place on the grid after qualifying problems yesterday. His third win of the season secured his championship victory by 10 points over Fernandez.

British rider Josh Harland took the final podium place in third, but Robin Anne from France, who was also in the running for the championship title, could do no better than 20th place today.

‰ÛÏI can‰Ûªt believe it!‰Û
