Lewis Cornish

Asia SuperMoto Championship

Lewis Cornish won Round 4 of the FIM Asia SuperMoto Championship by winning the only moto to be run at the KF1 Karting Circuit in Singapore.

Cornish qualified fastest for Moto 1 and got the holeshot on the tight circuit.

The Briton ended up winning the 28-lap encounter by over 12 seconds after Dane Simon Vilhelmsen, who ran second early on, developed a brake problem and had to retire.

Malaysian Muhd Habibullah finished second on his return after suffering a punctured lung in a motocross event, having prevailed in an early battled with Yasushi Matsumoto, Trakarn Thangthong, and Khairi Zakaria.

Thangthong took third, five seconds further back.

Moto 2 was cancelled due to lightning and heavy rain, meaning that Moto 1 results became the round results.

Cornish continues to lead the championship ahead of the final round this coming weekend in Kuala Lumpur.
