Great Britain will have two representatives in this year’s FIM World Under-21 Championship Final. Newly crowned British Champion Robert Lambert and wonderkid Dan Bewley both qualified from their respective semi-finals to guarantee themselves a place in the three meeting mini-series.
Lambert, who also secured silver with Great Britain in last week’s Speedway of Nations, came out on top in his semi-final in Poland. He dropped just one point in his programmed rides before getting the better of Bartosz Smektala in the run-off.
Bewley was one of three riders to finish on 13 points in Vetlanda, Sweden, and finished second overall behind Russia’s Gleb Chugunov in a three man run-off.
Wolverhampton and Redcar racer Nathan Greaves also scored a respectable six points in the same meeting on an invaluable afternoon of experience for the youngster.
Meanwhile there was heartbreak for Swindon and Lakeside talent Zach Wajtknecht who rode terrifically well to notch ten points in the Czech Republic, but missed out on the final qualification spot after finishing behind Nick Skorja and Filip Hajek in the all-important run-off.
