The Wright brothers are flying high

BOSTON’S Chris Wright has started the defence of his British Quad Bike Championship title.

Travelling up and down the country in his quest, Chris, 24, began the season racing on the Silverstone track for the first time.

There he took third place to set down an early marker.

Things didn’t go so well in race number two at the Three Sisters course in Wigan, where mechanical failures let him down and he didn’t place.

However, he took another third-place finish at Cumbria’s Rowrah circuit to put his hopes back on track.

There are still five meetings left in the series, including one on Chris’ ‘home’ circuit - Louth’s Cadwell Park.

Chris’ younger brother Nick, 20, is also in the thick of the action.

He is currently celebrating coming third in his quad class in the Mablethorpe Sand Racing Championships.

He achieved this despite only entering three races.
