This years Redcar Speedway Amateur Open Series has seen two Danish riders Jacob Bukhave and Nicklas Clausen take the top two places in the Open 500cc category.
The series run by Jamie Swales at the Media Prima Arena was set up this year for riders wanting to contest a series away from the main leagues in British Speedway.
Both Jacob and Nicklas who have their bases on Teesside when over in the UK with the Hall family decided to contest this years series to give them more time racing on UK soil when not competing with their other commitments.
The pair who are great friends off track and good rivals on track took on the rest of the competitors and it was looking like a clean sweep until Nicklas suffered a crash in Denmark which at the time it wasn't known if he would be back for the rest of the season and after missing out on round 3 and what would be for the rest of the year knew his campaign was over, but with having scored top points his second place was still there for the taking and it was looking like George Rothery was going to have it from Clausen, but with the cancellation now of the series due to the winter weather and running out of time with the days at the track Jamie Swales has confirmed the overall places after 3 rounds.
The winner on 44 points is Jacob Bukhave from Harndrup who is an unattached rider after having a stint with Newcastle Diamonds earlier this season is looking for a team place for 2020.
Nicklas from Otterup in Denmark finished on 24 points.
George Rothery in Third was close with 22 points.
Jamie Swales said "It's with massive disappointment that we have had to make the decision to not run the last round, unfortunately the track is deteriorating with the current weather and with winter preparations needed we have ran out of time."
It is hoped with the success it's been this year the series will once again run in 2020.
