Sponsor boost for rising King’s Lynn Star from Heacham Kerr

Have your say

Family-run Lynn business Factory Direct Windows Norfolk Ltd has decided to sponsor local speedway star Lewis Kerr of Heacham.

Managing directors, husband and wife duo Fred and Caron Powell, have always had a keen interest in motorsport, especially Fred who has competed in stock car racing for more than 30 years all over the UK.

The couple have become increasingly involved with the sport. Adrian Flux Arena owner, Buster Chapman, has employed Factory Direct on numerous occasions for maintenance projects.

Fred has had a close eye on Kerr’s career which dates back to when Factory Direct was located in Snettisham from the early 2000’s, when Kerr – then living in the village – was competing in motocross.

Fred and Caron said: “It’s great to be able to support a local lad and it’s a bonus that he rides for our local team.

“Caron and I look forward to helping Lewis financially, as well as helping him any way we can with the travelling he has to do in order to compete.”
