Competing in the British Enduro Championship for the first time ever on a Kawasaki Manxman David Knight has again claimed a winning result – this time topping the second day of the Central Wales Auto Club organised Knighton Enduro. Despite having just one-week to prepare for the second round of the BEC series, the Paul Bird Motorsport/Kawasaki Superbike Racing Team backed rider finished third on day one before moving to the top of the overall results on day two. Importantly, having never raced his KX450F in enduro competition before, Knight came away from the event having made sizeable improvements in the set-up of his machine.
