Heat 11
Wells, Pickering, Palm Toft, RES WILKINSON

Result:(Rerun) Wilkinson, Wells, Palm Toft, Pickering (57.7) 2-4 (41-25)

Carl Wilkinson replaces Tero Aarnio.

What a mess! Ref not told of the change so put red lights on but they still managed to start the race and immediately stopped. Ref now officially informed.

Rerun: Ricky pinned MPT to the inside which allowed Wilko to fly by on the outside. Ricky then all over Wilko for 4 laps but just couldn't get past. Close a couple of times but couldn't get nose in front and MPT waiting to pounce behind.

Tractors out and watering again.

A bit of a delay as ref is now on centre green as riders complaining about the sun in their eyes making it difficult to see.

Race stopped. Ricky down. Elbows between him and Josh on way to first corner leaving Ricky no room. All4back. Ricky up and seems okay.

Clegg, Pickering, Douglas, RES WILKINSON

Result: Wilkinson, Clegg, Douglas, Pickering (58.8) 2-4 (50-36)

Carl Wilkinson replaces Ryan MacDonald.

Scorpions ftg with Josh in third. Monarchs battling each other for 3 laps but never that far from Douglas. Max finally got past Josh at the start of the last lap and made up loads of ground and managed to pip Douglas on the run to the line. Brilliant recovery.

Heat 15
Riss, Masters, Palm Toft, Kerr

Result (Re-Run): Palm Toft, Masters, Kerr, Riss (F/x) (57) 2-4 (52-40)

Scorpions take 2 & 4.

Race stopped. Erik down 4th bend lap 1 and is excluded. He is up and seems okay. What a first lap. Erik was ahead but MPT went under him down the back straight. Then Sam went between them and all 3 went in to bend 3 together and with Erik on the outside had to give it up and ended in the last air bag. Updater feels Sam may have been a tad hard on his team mate.

Air bag burst so there will be a slight delay.

Sam gated but a good first bend from Michael took him in to the lead and Sam never looked fast enough to catch him.
