Superb performance from the Norfolk boy, so proud to be able to say that he grew up ten miles or so from where I live! Thoroughly deserved. Well done to Dan Bewley too, both fantastic talents who will be in the GP's one day.

I think he sounds like Scotty..... The future is brighter :approve:

Great meeting. Well deserved winner and a great second from Young Dan. Hats off to Garrity as well - he rode his socks off.

It really was an excellent British final. The riders have been seen to go through the motions until the Cardiff wildcard came with winning it. Once it got away from Monmore the racing improved, though BV alienates the whole south of the UK as it is so far north.

Still, the best track in the country as it proved tonight.

well its the first british final in 20yrs ive failed to fall asleep half way through,so that say's a lot,and to be really honest since simmo won in 76

You would like to think they would give Lambert a wildcard for GP Challenge,but politics will play a part no doubt.

Great meeting and the right result.Would have been a travesty for Lambert to go through the card and then miss out in the final.Can't wait for Cardiff now to see him mix it(hopefully)with the best in the World.

Brilliant to see Bewley 2nd as well.As Shovlar said another rider or 2 to step up and we will have a World cup team to be afraid of.

Just need a multi-millionaire now to pump money in and make every track pretty much like Belle Vue's.That is an awesome track which every rider seems to enjoy.

Best not to get carried away but with Lambert and Bewley, S Worrall and Cook, there is a nucleus there of real capabilty and potential...

Riders like Garrity, Howarth and Ellis too have the occasional 'good night' at a level that suggests if they could get consistency they too could develop into a higher bracket given their still quite young age..

Add possibly the best rider in the World to that mix and who knows, maybe the future could be much brighter than most think for British Speedway..?

As we see from all the Sports behind football in the pecking order, a successful National Team brings in the media coverage, (written, audio and visual), the readers, listeners and viewers, the fans at the event and, very importantly, the sponsors.

Maybe these lads now need some Test Matches at home and abroad to test their metal and improve them?

A great meeting for TV tonight, not only on track but off it too, some very good composed interviews from those who got asked the questions and the crowd level, whilst not what a meeting like this deserves, certainly looked 'enough' to come across positively on TV..

The sport came across very well tonight to any 'non fans' watching....

Deserved winner, the future of British speedway is going to be very bright in the 5 years with the Thompson Twins and Flint the next top class next on the block.

surprised nobody mentioned how much better Auty is compared to Howarth. Strangely quiet tonight. :lol::lol:
