‘It’s a chance to prove ourselves’

GLASGOW have a big chance to prove they’re capable of challenging for silverware.

That’s according to team boss Cami Brown, who’s going for gold in tomorrow’s Championship Fours at Redcar.

The Tigers’ top four riders, backed up by Paul Starke at reserve, will aim to put themselves in the history books by becoming the first Glasgow team to win the competition.

On paper, the quartet of Chris Harris, Richie Worrall, Claus Vissing and Lewis Kerr is one of the strongest at the event.

With the team going through a tough run of results, and having been inconsistent this year, Brown won’t put any pressure on his men.

However, on a track where they usually ride well, he thinks it’s a chance to show they have the bottle for a trophy tilt.

He said: “It’s been a tough run for the boys but we have four good riders who, on their day, are among the best in the league.

“With the normal team format taken away, it gives them a chance to shine individually and put plenty of points on the board for their team.

“The fact we’ve got Paul Starke at reserve shows our strength in depth.

“I’m not going to tell the guys I expect them to win – we’re going there to enjoy ourselves and see how far we can go in the competition – but it’s a real opportunity to win a trophy we’ve never won before, and get our season back on track.

“A win at Redcar would prove to be a massive boost to our campaign and the confidence we’d take from that could be vital in helping our challenge for the Championship title.”

All 11 Championship sides are taking part in the event at South Tees Motorsports Park from 2pm.
