16th May 2019
The 2019 British Youth Championship has its first stand alone meeting at Peterborough on Friday night with a earlier than normal start time of 7pm.
39 riders across the 3 classes of 500cc, 250cc and 125cc are taking part in what is the most exciting season to date for the riders involved as they compete at all 7 Premiership venues and also a round at Glasgow.
Round 1 was at Ipswich was just 2 weeks ago, and all the 3 winners of that round Jordan Palin 500cc, Sam Hagon 250cc and Luke Harrison 125cc are competing again and will be looking to continue their great start to this years series.
National League Rider Harry McGurk makes his first appearance in the 500cc class, and along with fellow National League Riders, Palin, Joe and Dan Thompson, this particular class is a real high level
Northern Junior League Riders Gregor Millar and Archie Freeman are also making their first appearance in this years series, after both missing the Ipswich Round.
In the 250cc class Sam Hagon will have his work cut out to win this round, as Mildenhall squad member Sam Norris will be keen to impress at his local venue, and 2 times 125cc British Champion Sam McGurk will be hoping for better luck this time around after crashing out at Ipswich in his first heat.
The 125cc class is the biggest attendance with 23 riders competing, and with so many riders in this class to qualify for the final, riders can hardly afford to drop a point.
Peterborough mascot Max Perry will have the majority of the home support, and after missing out on a rostrum place at Ipswich by finishing in 4th position, will be hoping to claim the top prize on his home track.
There will be 42 races in total, and expected to take just over 2 hours to complete.
