Report

BELLE Vue CEO Mark Lemon switched to his management role with Australia on Wednesday – and is now targeting a successful defence of the FIM Speedway of Nations.

Both Denmark and Australia coasted into Saturday’s Final giving outings to all three of their riders in Wednesday’s semi in Manchester, with the Danes winning the meeting on 40 points and the holders finishing on 34.

Aces captain Brady Kurtz top-scored for Australia on 13 points with Leicester’s Max Fricke on 11, and Jack Holder of Sheffield added ten.

Lemon said: “The boys gelled and worked really well in the pits. We executed the plan, and it worked quite well. But we know Saturday night will be another level.

“We anticipate that with great excitement and expectation to try and deliver what we did in Vojens two years ago.

“Manchester is a great stadium and a great racetrack. It’s going to be a great Final.

“We go into Saturday with a job to do. We have the talent to do it. Everyone needs a bit of luck.”

Meanwhile Latvia produced the surprise of the night taking the third qualification spot, edging out the Czech Republic in a dramatic race-off when King’s Lynn’s Jan Kvech fell at the end of the third lap.
