Bears duo set for British final!
Redcar’s dynamic British heatleader duo, Charles Wright and Lewis Kerr will compete in British Speedway’s blue riband event after being selected to compete in the 2022 British Final on August 1st at the National Speedway Stadium, and Redcar co-promoter Jamie Swales is ecstatic about the news!
Wright last won the title back on a memorable night in 2019 whilst Kerr will be bidding for his maiden success.
The Bears co-promoter said, “It shows how well we are doing as a club at the moment as I can’t recall us having two representatives in the final many times before!”
The former rider is bullish about the chances of the Bears duo, “Charles obviously knows that track, (Belle Vue) inside out and looking at the field, I don’t see anyone who is quicker than him around the National Speedway Stadium. I also think Lewi has a chance despite Belle Vue not being his favourite track but as we all know, Lewi could easily turn up on the night and take the crown!”
Swales also believes that Redcar’s 2 young club assets, Jason Edwards and Jordan Jenkins will be in future British Finals, “Both of our young assets are on the right trajectory and they are both improving this season. They both should look at their two teammates in the final and think, that will be me in the future! Personally, I also believe they are both not too far behind Leon Flint who has been selected for the event.”
The top 14 averaged riders were selected for the event with 2 wildcards also named. The meeting also includes former multiple winners in Scott Nicholls and Chris Harris and the current Grand Prix star Dan Bewley.
LINE-UP (Not in riding order): Dan Bewley, Adam Ellis, Chris Harris, Danny King, Richard Lawson, Steve Worrall, Craig Cook, Kyle Howarth, Charles Wright, Richie Worrall, Lewis Kerr, Scott Nicholls, Paul Starke, Ben Barker, Leon Flint, Tom Brennan. Reserves: Danyon Hume, Connor Mountain.
