King’s Lynn Speedway will welcome the next generation of young talent when they host the third round of the British Youth Championship at the Adrian Flux Arena tomorrow (Saturday, June 11, midday).

Britain’s brightest young stars will descend upon Norfolk, where the 500cc and 250cc classes will be battling to move a step closer to securing national glory.

With 150cc and 125cc support classes also in action, fans will be able to enjoy 50 heats of racing – including four finals!

It is the first time the British Youth Championship has taken place at Lynn since 2009 – and Great Britain Youth boss Neil Vatcher is expecting a thrilling afternoon with over 40 enthusiastic young riders in action.

Vatcher said: “For the Youth Championship to be hosted by such a great venue as King’s Lynn is an honour for us and one that we are all looking forward to.

“We all know King’s Lynn is one of the top stadiums in Europe now, it’s hosted World Cups and Grand Prix qualifiers, so it should be a great experience for all the young lads to race there.

“Even though there is a large turn-out of riders and will be 50 races, the afternoon entertainment will be fast and furious.

“With all being well we’ll complete this event in just under three hours, and anyone who has witnessed one of these meetings in the past will know how well they are run.

“British Speedway fans are urged to turn out to support the British youngsters in what are the most exciting times for British Speedway in many years.”

With admission costing just £5 for all adults and under 11s free, it is hoped plenty of supporters will turn out to support the next generation of British riders.

Gates will open at 10am with the action getting underway at midday, and a free racecard will be available for those in attendance.
