CIRENCESTER'S teenage motor cycle racer Kurtis Drew has made a solid start to the IN Competition Aprilia RRV 450GP Championship – part of this year's Thundersport GB season.

Kurtis, 17, enjoyed a successful 2013 on a 125cc machine and is making a smooth transition to the bigger bike, having already achieved his seasonal goal of a top 10 finish in both the rounds so far at Brands Hatch and Donington Park.

Kurtis is holding a fundraiser on Sunday, April 27 at Somewhere Else in Cirencester, from 1pm until 5pm. The £5 admission fee includes a glass of bubbly on arrival, live entertainment and a raffle with some fantastic prizes including tickets to the World Superbike round at Donington Park.
