29th June 2017
Harry McGurk kept the run going tonight here in Torun Poland where at least 1 rider has qualified for every final that the Young Lions have entered in 2017, where the older of the McGurk Brothers made it through to the A Final of the 125cc European Championship, narrowly missing out on a 3rd place finish by a width of a tyre.
Harry scored 9 points in his qualifying heats to make the B Final, where the first 2 finishers would qualify for the A Final.
Sam McGurk who scored 7 points also made the B Final after a ballot with 3 other riders who also scored 7.
Britain’s 3rd representative Luke Harrison who only turned 10 years old two weeks ago and was the youngest rider in the field worked hard for his 4 points which included a fall, qualified for the D Final, and ended up winning his final, which was a great end to his evening.
All 3 Brits did everyone proud, and all 3 will learn from the fantastic experience which has taken place at the Grand Prix Venue.
The meeting was won by Czech Republic rider Filip Sifalda.
