Danderhall motorcyclist Michael Robertson has become the Morello GP1 Champion for 2011.

Robertson’s achievement is even greater as this was his first season racing in the 1000cc class at Thundersport GB.

Robertson, who races the Carnies Autocentre Kawasaki ZX10, had to wait until the last round of the season to take the championship. At the start of the weekend, he knew that it would not be easy, as it was so close in the points with Phil Crowe and Ian Mackman.

Keeping his head and using all of his skills, Robertson finished the last race with a fastest time of 52.491 - only 0.207 seconds off the fastest lap of the race which was put in by Crowe.
