The 6th and Final round of the 2015 Mitas British Youth Championship moves North to Cumbria this Saturday afternoon, as the Northside track in Workington host the event at the second time of asking, as the original round four weeks ago had to be postponed due to the track being vandalised.
British Youth Boss Neil Vatcher said, “all credit to the staff at the Northside venue who have put in a tremendous amount of work and effort at the stadium to get it up and running after tragically being vandalised only four weeks ago.
For me personally, this Northside track is what British Youth speedway at this level is all about. It is a great little venue, an ideal size track for all these young riders on how to not only ride but race a speedway bike regardless of what class they are riding in.
This season series has been unreal, and I know we say it every year but the series really does get better each and every year, and this years series is certainly no different.
We have some great sponsors on board, which now includes Kandysoft Solutions who have assisted us all this season for which we appreciate their help along with all our loyal sponsors Mitas Tyres, Wessex Marine, Friends of Speedway, Nuneaton Speedway Supporters Club, PBHS of Barnsley , Duck Smart Cleaning Products and Trend Creative, who have designed and created our fantastic website, Twitter and Facebook accounts, which has given the Youth Series a higher profile.
With both the British Titles in the 500cc and 250cc being clinched at Rye House last Sunday, with Jack Parkinson and Tom Brennan respectively, there are still rostrum places up for grabs in both classes, and also to see if Parkinson can claim a remarkable record of winning all six rounds, an achievement that has never been done before.”
Across all four classes, a good turnout of 39 riders meaning an afternoon’s entertainment of a total of 43 races including a final in each of the 4 classes.
