West Lothian Courier - - Property -

Brox­burn ace Jor­dan Gill proved he could mix it with the best last week dur­ing the Bri­tish Su­per­bikes Tri-Op­tions Cup event held at the iconic Sil­ver­stone track.

The 16-year-old has been given spe­cial dis­pen­sa­tion to com­pete in the event this term, with the lower age limit be­ing 17.

How­ever, Jor­dan’s prodi­gious tal­ent was enough for him to be al­lowed to com­pete this term and he is the youngest in his class by a full seven years.

The Highsparks Motorsport Du­cati ace was in fine form over the two races grab­bing 11th spot in the first race, over five laps.

He dipped slightly in the eight lap sec­ond race, crossing the line in 12th spot.

The young­ster has more than held his own over the pre­vi­ous two events and will be hop­ing he can take a fur­ther step for­ward as the Tri-Op­tions Cup sea­son comes to an end later this month.

The fi­nal races are set to take place in Assen be­gin­ning on Septem­ber 29.
