LAMBERT CONTINUES HIS BRITISH REIGN
Robert Lambert retained his British Under-21 title as he went through the card to score a maximum at Shielfield Park, Berwick.
The night kicked off with young-guns Tom Brennan and Drew Kemp taking their first heat wins along with Dan Bewley and Lambert who all topped the score card. Local lad, Leon Flint, sat behind the heat winners equal with Kyle Bickley, Jack Thomas and Zach Wajtknecht who were all on two points.
As the heats passed by, reigning British Junior and Senior champ, Lambert, added wins to his name, while the fight for the second seeded place to the final became tighter and tighter over the course of the night. Bewley was obviously backed to take that spot with both hands, however, the expectations did not turn out that way after he, Kemp and Brennan were all to scrap for the place in their last scheduled heat of the night. 17 year old Brennan got the better of Bewley to sail through to the final, meanwhile the Belle Vue Ace and Kemp left their fate to be decided in the Semi-Final.
Lining up at the tapes as the green light came on for the Semi-Final, was Wajtknecht in red, Thomas in blue, Bewley in white and Kemp in yellow. Wajtknecht gated to take the lead followed by Kemp and Thomas, however, Thomas rode a hard race to get the better of young star, Kemp, to grab the last place in the final.
Lambert once again took the win in the Grand Final after passing Wajtknecht at the end of lap one. Thomas held off Brennan to complete the rostrum and take third place.
