Western Australian ADC representative Chris Lewis

Thursday 19 October 2017

Lewis topped the West Australian Drivers Premiership table again last season, making it ten driving premierships for the master reinsman, winning a staggering 214 races, 38 clear of his closest rival Ryan Warwick, who will also represent WA in the Championship.

Lewis got 2017 off to a flying start, driving four winners at Bunbury on New Year’s Eve to move him into an exclusive club with only Gavin Lang and Chris Alford, as reinsmen to have driven more than 5,000 winners in Australia.

Chris first drove at Gloucester Park in June 1976 when he took part in the inaugural Australian Young Drivers Championship.

He represented Australia in the 2011 World Drivers Championship in the USA and has also driven winners in Moscow.

Chris has driven over 50 Group One winners throughout his career including the Australian Pacing Championship, WA Pacing Cup, Fremantle Cup, WA Derby & Oaks, and WA Golden Slipper Stakes.

The West Australian Racing Industry inducted Chris Lewis into the Hall of Fame in 2010.
