Richard & Lewis aim for British Final glory

The Vortex Lakeside Hammers will be represented by Richard Lawson and Lewis Bridger in tonight’s British Final at Wolverhampton, where current World Champion Tai Woffinden will be going for back-to-back titles.

The Wolves skipper, who has won the last two GPs, will come up against seven-times British Champion Scott Nicholls and treble winner Chris Harris, with a host of other riders also looking to compete for the national title and a Wild Card place at the British GP.

BSPA Chairman Alex Harkess said: “Chris Van Straaten and his staff always ensure a smooth, professional running of the meeting and I’m sure tonight will be no different.

“Sky have been showing some highlights from previous British Finals recently, and they have just served as a reminder of what it means to the riders. I’m hoping for a great night of racing, a great atmosphere and a great night of weather!”
