British Youth Championship -Round 6

The sixth and final round of the 2021 British Youth Championship takes place at Plymouth this evening (tapes up 7pm).

British Champions Ben Trigger 500cc and Luke Harrison 250cc will both be in attendance and both riders will be aiming to make it a clean sweep of this year’s Championship having won all 5 previous rounds.

Although the Championship has been decided in those two classes, there is still plenty to race for in the 250cc Championship with 4 riders still in with a chance of getting a podium finish.

The current Championship scores are: Max James on 70 points, Sonny Springer 63, Ace Pijper 62 and Jody Scott 60.

As well as podium places for the 250cc, the 125cc Class is still wide open with Cooper Rushen needing to win tonight’s round to force a run off with current leader Stene Pijper with Jamie Etherington and Oliver Bovingdon also in with a shout of claiming a bronze medal.

Young Lions boss Neil Vatcher commented:

“Once again this have been a fantastic series and we have been very fortunate to have been to 5 great venues already Scunthorpe, Redcar, Belle Vue, Edinburgh Leicester and of course we are really looking forward to the round at Plymouth this evening.”
