What a pity that Germany had to go into this meeting with such an understrength line-up. We had to replace the scheduled top three of Michael Härtel (of the Ipswich Witches), Lukas Fienhage and Sandro Wassermann, with unexperienced youngsters such as Wachs, Hillebrand, and Wessel. A couple of our boys, who were drafted in a late notice,  were using loaned bikes provided by the Riss Brothers.

Another top rider missing  from the German team was our current national U21 champ Daniel Spiller (formerly with Eastbourne). With Härtel, Fienhage, Wassermann, Spiller, and Möser at reserve, the German team would have had much quality.

Anyway I am glad that this meeting was so very entertaining fro the Glasgow Speedway folks. It sure is always refreshing to see some new faces on the track !

He must have come on a lot this season as he is head and shoulders above Pickering on this showing.

Not really, Joshie has the beating of most of the GB team except maybe Dan Bewley.    

This isn't to take anything away from Jaimon, who is a very good prospect.

Love a bit of optimism but no. Perks has an 8 point championship average. He's on a par with the rest but no better until he learns to gate.

Is there a typo here. Perks has 4.7 average. By the way anyone that hasn't looked there's some brilliant photos on the Tigers official Facebook page. The crash sequence really scary and so glad the lad got up right away and walked back to the pits
