Christian Iddon took two wins in the SM1 class at the opening round of the Moto GB British Supermotard Championship at Cadwell Park on Saturday, May 20, despite switching from his Apirlia GP bike to his UK-spec machine for race day.
Iddon's swap saw him qualify in a lowly eighth place, but two strong starts put him into a three rider battle with Aprilia UK rider Sam Warran and KTM UK's Ady Smith. Iddon overcame both riders to take two wins from Warren, with Smith third on both occasions. Fourth was reigning Irish 450 champion Keith farmer on a Husaberg with the Honda of frenchman Mickael Zammit fifth.
