A Brit of a bad night…

GLASGOW’S three representatives at the British Final had a night to forget as they failed to make a challenge for the prestigious title.

Chris Harris looked most likely to take some spoils as he raced to a win and a hard-fought second place against eventual winner Robert Lambert in his second and third outings following a disappointing last in his opener.

But the three-time champion then ran another last and a second, leaving him with a total of seven points – not enough to make the top six and the latter stages of the meeting.

Lewis Kerr had a steady night, scoring five – but a lack of heat wins meant he was never really in contention – though he perhaps had the best meeting of the three Tigers based on expectations.

Meanwhile Glasgow No 1 Richie Worrall’s night was marred by bike problems as twice his machinery let him down. He only completed a lap in his first race before his bike gave up – then his chain broke while he warmed up at the tapes for his third ride.

Worrall emerged on brother Steve’s bike for his fourth outing but ran a last, and ended on three after a third in his last heat.

Lambert went through the card in the qualifying heats, scoring a 15-point maximum, before beating Dan Bewley, Craig Cook and Jason Garrity in the final to claim his first British Championship at the age of just 20.
