Kyle and Ashley hit the World under-21 title trail on 11th May
Great Britain will have three representatives in the semi-finals of this year's World under-21 Championship and the Comets will be providing two of them!
Kyle Howarth and Ashley Morris will represent Great Britain in the semi-finals of the competition on Saturday May 11th; but in doing so they will not miss a Comets fixture as Workington do not have a meeting that weekend.
Kyle will compete at Italian venue Lonigo, the scene of Stoney's famous GP Challenge back in 1999, while Ashley, along with this year's British winner Robert Branford, will race at Rawicz in Poland.
Kyle, Ashley and Branford all finished in the top four at last week's British Under-21 Final, with third-placed Jason Garrity having opted out of the World series.
GB Youth co-boss Phil Morris said: “The top five from the three semi-finals will go forward to the three-round World Under-21 Final, the second round of which is at Berwick on Saturday August 10th.
“We would again like to thank the Nuneaton Speedway Supporters Club for helping the riders out with tyres for the meetings, and if there are any companies or individuals who could help the three riders with any sponsorship towards their costs, however big or small, I'm sure the boys would be delighted to hear from them.”
