Robert Lambert Wins Under 19 European Speedway Crown
The European U19 Individual Speedway Cup was held at Divisov, in Czech Republic, in a cloudy, windy day after the heavy rain of the day before. Over 200 spectators watched very interesting races among 18 very young riders from 10 different Countries. The racing was very tight in the whole meeting and the riders fought also with a bit tricky track, with a lot of deep ruts.

After 21 heats, in the Final heat the winner was the Brit Robert Lambert, in front of Filip Hjelmland, from Sweden, of Bartosz Smektala from Poland and of Michael Haertel from Germany. Robert Lambert managed to snatch victory in all 6 his heats. It was the first meeting after a few years when the riders under 19 competed for the FIM Europe Cup.

Meanwhile fellow British rider Nathan Greaves was unfortunate to miss out on qualification, scoring seven points despite suffering a fall in Heat 16 on a tricky Divisov track.
