Yorkshire ride out for Cowton funeral

Final journey for racer

Scores of bikers have turned out for the send-off of Southern 100 star James Cowton.

Friends, family and fans of the late rider took part in a mass ride out ahead of his funeral in East Yorkshire this morning.

The 26-year-old died following a crash on the Billown Circuit earlier this month.

Tributes have been paid on social media this afternoon to a 'true gentleman' who provided 'passion and entertainment' in his racing.
