Demonstration Races at British Under 21 Final

14th April 2015



The results were as follows, each rider had two races.


15) Dan Thompson 3 3 = 6

14) Joe Thompson 2 2 = 4

46) Niall Clever      1  1 = 2

23) Jacob Clayton  F  N/S = 0


Young Lions were privileged to have been invited to do 2 demonstration races at last nights prestige event of the British Under 21 Final at Coventry.

Local boys, all from the Midlands, riding 125cc machines, Dan and Joe Thompson along with Niall Cleaver and Jacob Clayton were all programmed to have 2 rides each.

In heat 1 which was held after heat 20 of the main event, Jacob Clayton flipped his machine at the start line as the tapes rose and the other 3 riders raced away.

The Thompson Twins were neck and neck for the 4 laps of both races and you could have thrown a blanket over the 2 in both races and went right to the finish line before the winner was decided.

Young Jacob Clayton did not take part in the 2nd race as he damaged his wrist and was taken to hospital for an x-ray with a suspected broken wrist.
