GREAT Britain will have representation in two major European 250cc events early next month.
Current British 250cc Champion Luke Harrison will lead the GB team in the FIM European 250cc Pairs competition, along with Max James who has finished runner-up to Harrison in the last two years of the British series.
There will be two Pairs meeting taking place over a six-day period with the individual European 250cc Championship taking place in between those dates.
The first Pairs event will take place in Czestochowa, Poland on July 7, where Harrison and James will be joined by Ashton Vale. Round 2 takes place in Pardubice, Czech Republic, with the third round at Danish venue Randers in early August.
And on July 9, fellow British 250cc rider William Cairns will join Harrison, James and Vale in Liberec in the Czech Republic in the semi-finals of the Individual championship in the hope of qualifying for the Finals which also will be at the Liberec venue the following day.
Young Lions boss Neil Vatcher said: “This is massive dedication by all four British riders and their families to compete in these events across Europe representing Great Britain, as at this level none of the riders get any financial reimbursement from the organisers, and it is therefore all self-funded.”
