Match-winning performance from Richard at Ipswich
Comets skipper Richard Lawson turned in a match-winning performance for Great Britain at Ipswich this evening (Thursday) as the home side went 1 -0 up in this five match international series with a 50-40 victory over Australia.

Riding at number 7 against a strong Australian side Richard began the evening with a second place behind Workington's recent regular guest, Micky Dyer, before reeling off three race wins, including a victory over the in-form Jason Doyle.

Richard then rounded off a fine evenings' work by coming home in third place behind Ipswich skipper Leigh Lanham in a shared penultimate heat with the match having already been won after thirteen races.

This saw Richard top the GB score-charts with 12+1 from his five rides while Jason Doyle topped the Australian sides scorers with 11 points from his five outings.

The Series, which visits Workington in August, is the brain child of Rye House Promoter Len Silver and Ipswich Promoter Chris Louis.
