2022 British Speedway Season


    BRITISH youngsters Luke Harrison, Max James and Ace Pijper are in Poland to compete in the FIM European 250cc Championship.

    The competition takes place at Torun with two semi-finals being staged on Friday afternoon, with domestic 250cc champion Harrison in the first, and James and Pijper then in the second.

    GB Youth boss Neil Vatcher said: “The three British boys’ aim on Friday will be to score enough points to qualify for the European Final that takes place at the same venue on Saturday afternoon, and by then be dialled-in to the track and have the right set-up to put in a challenge to compete for a medal in the Final.

    “These boys from all over Europe competing on the 250s are huge talents, and even though we have sent out our top three, this will be a massive learning curve for all of them and a fantastic experience.

    “And as well as that, to have the opportunity to race and compete and one of the best speedway stadiums in the world – it’s the biggest week of their young lives.”

    The three riders will then make their way back to Cloppenburg in North Germany to take part in next weekend’s FIM World 250cc Championship.
