TEENAGE sensation Kyle Roberts powered to an unbeaten 20-point maximum to claim the Chris Allen Memorial Trophy at the Hearsall Common track on Sunday afternoon.

The 15-year-old produced a superb performance to take victory but what made his win all the more touching was his close relationship with the Allen family who have helped and supported him throughout his career so far.

A compelling ride in heat 16 over the Polish duo of Konrad Pietak and Dominik Rycharski proved to be the highlight of the meeting for the Kenilworth schoolboy.

Combining his fearless approach and extreme acceleration, Roberts proved himself to have an old head on young shoulders as he blocked every-one of Rycharski’s moves.

A last heat victory over Daniel Drewett, and last year’s champion Mark Winwood, was enough for Roberts to earn his second major trophy of the season – following up from an individual win at Newport back in July.

Rycharski dropped just one point to finish second whilst Roberts’ fellow 15-year-old racer, Mason Phillips, finished third with an impressive 17 points.
