The 3rd Round of the Mitas British Youth Championship is being hosted by King’s Lynn this Saturday with a early start of a 12 noon first race.
As proven by the fantastic turn out of 46 riders across the 4 classes of 500cc, 250cc, 150cc and 125cc, the Norfolk venue who has not hosted a round since 2009, which means none of these generation of riders have competed at the Adrian Flux Arena, is a very popular choice from all the Young Lions, and with such a large turn out of riders, to include a final for each class there will be a total of 50 races.
Youth Boss Neil Vatcher said, “for the Youth Championship to be hosted by such great venues as King’s Lynn as we all know is one of the top stadium’s in Europe now and had hosted World Cups and Grand Prix qualifiers, it is a honour for us and one that we are all looking forward to.
Even though there is a large turn out of riders and there will be 50 races, the afternoon’s entertainment will be fast and furious, and all being well we will complete this event in just under 3 hours, and anyone who has witnessed one of these meetings in the past will know how well organised these events are run”.
So after Scunthorpe running round 2 over the 2 May Bank Holidays split in to 2 classes, the format returns to the normal running where the 500cc and 250cc are run as a British Championship with the support races of both 150cc and 125cc all run as 1 event.
British Speedway fans are urged to turn out to support the British youngest in what is the most exciting times of British Speedway for many years.
Turnstiles will be open from 11am with a minimal entrance fee for adults, and free entrance for Under 11s.
