British Youth Round 4
This Sunday afternoon the British Youth Championship continues at Scunthorpe with the 2 classes of 500cc and 250cc competing in Round 4 after the Scunthorpe Championship fixture with Glasgow.
8 riders in each class are competing, to make it an 18 heat 2nd half, so plenty of entertainment for the Scunthorpe public on Sunday.
Corban Pavitt returns from his broken wrist to compete in the 500cc class after making the final in his only other previous round at Redcar in May.
Elliott Kelly and Bailey Fellows will be making their 500cc debuts after moving up from the 125cc class, and with series leader Leon Flint looking to win his 4th consecutive round and all but clinching another British Title.
The 250cc battle will continue with European finalist Jordan Palin and Nathan Ablitt going toe to toe for this British Championship, and with 8 riders competing this is the biggest entry in this class so far this season.
World Under 21 Final Round 2
GB’s Robert Lambert and Dan Bewley have got a busy weekend ahead, as both riders are not only competing in the British Grand Prix at Cardiff on Saturday, but then have a early morning flight to Poland on Sunday to compete in the 2nd Round of the FIM World Under 21 Final in Leszno.
Lambert who finished 2nd in Round 1 in Latvia last month is 3 points behind series leader Maksym Drabik, and it is important not to let Drabik pull further ahead over this 3 round series.
Bewley will be looking for at least a top 8 finish after just missing out in Latvia. After Sunday’s round in Poland the series completes in the Czech Republic in September.
FIM European Pairs Semi Final
On Saturday evening in Lonigo Italy, Lakeside duo Adam Ellis and Richard Lawson are representing GB in the FIM European Pairs Semi Final.
The duo will be looking for a top 2 finish to qualify for the European Pairs Final which takes place in Denmark in September.
Ellis said, “we will be hoping to be making some good starts, as the big flat Italian circuit is tough to pass. If Richard and I can make some good starts, there is no reason why we cannot qualify for this European Final.”
Ellis who rode in the Semi Final in 2017 with Josh Bates, will be hoping for a repeat performance where on that occasion he scored a 7 ride maximum.
