The rider visited the recently-opened Burnham information

were also able to buy signed photographs, which raised money for

community-run information centre.
Tom Ashton from BIARS told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We
are very grateful to Christian and the team from the Oaktree Arena
for visiting us."

look around our new centre."
Burnham photographer Mike Lang took photos of visitors
at Thursday's event and these were sold in aid of BIARS.

and has also twice finished runner-up in the German Championship.
Following spells with Wolverhampton, Lakeside, Peterborough
and Coventry, he linked up with the Somerset Rebels in 2010 and
has gone on to become a top rider, scoring several maximum points
in recent meetings.
