Oxford-based motorcyclist Bradley Smith made history last year when, as a 16-year-old, he stepped onto the Grand Prix podium, having come third in a 125cc championship race.
Now, recently unveiled as a rider for the Polaris World team, Bradley looks set for great things. And we wish him well, in what must be one of the world’s toughest sports.
Meanwhile, motorsport fans, it looks like Lewis Hamilton is not going to be a flash in the pan – our man at the Barcelona testing says he’s fastest in practice. Good on, yer, Lewis.
The opening Grand Prix of the season is on 16 March in Australia.
