LEE Smart was a popular winner of Newport’s New Year Classic as he saved his best ride of the day for the Final.

Smart, who captained Dudley’s successful National League team last season, finished second in each of his four qualifying races and having reached the Final he powered past David Howe and Kevin Doolan on the first lap to take the title.

Smart said: “I didn’t expect to win today. I just turned up to have a bit of fun! The track was a bit tricky with a few holes so a few of the other boys struggled but I enjoyed it.”
