9th May 2018
It’s been a long winter for all concerned with the British Youth Championship, but the first round is now nearly upon us as Redcar host Round One on Saturday afternoon at a 2pm start time.
33 of Britain’s finest young talent will be on show at the Teeside venue across the 4 classes of 500cc, 250cc, 150cc and 125cc’s.
It will be a full afternoon of action which will include 4 Finals, 1 for each class, so a total of 37 races.
British Youth Boss Neil Vatcher said “I am as excited as ever for this brand new series to start and really can’t wait to see the new generation of 2018.
We will have some real special talent on show, and for the majority of these riders this is the first steps to their careers as professional Speedway Riders.”
A interesting fact from this year’s line up for the British Under 19 Final which is being held at Ipswich later this month is that 15 out of the 16 riders have competed at the British Youth Championship, so these crop of Riders can genuinely see a path where their careers can take them.
With last year’s 500cc Champion Drew Kemp not competing, and the 2 times 250cc Champion Leon Flint moving up to the 500cc class, there will be new British Champions crowned at the end of this year’s series, so no better place than Round 1 to make your mark!
All spectators are welcome for the 2pm start.
Young Lions would like to thank their series sponsors Nuneaton Speedway Supporters Club, Wessex Marine, Meridian Lifts, Rentruck, Friends of Speedway, Drains First, Koz Klassics, and PBHS of Barnsley.
