2021 IN REVIEW

Now that the 2021 season is officially over it’s time to look back and reflect ...

The Speedway season got underway in May with the Birmingham Brummies. Disappointingly the Team just missed out on the play-offs but personally James is happy with how his season has gone.

It’s been quite a challenge moving from reserve into the main body of the team at No. 3 but James managed to put in some good, solid performances and hold his own - scoring his average 90% of the time.

With COVID restrictions still in place for much of the season in Europe, James’ racing has been mostly English based. However, it’s been great fun for him to be back on his bike, and riding many of the tracks James used to ride on as a youth.

Overall it’s been a reasonably successful year. James finished top of the National Grading list in the 500cc solo class, was runner-up in the British Masters Championship, and won centre championship titles in the Southern, South Eastern and East Midlands centres.

As we all get better at ‘living with the virus’ James hopes that the 2022 season will see a full programme of meetings, both domestically and on the continent.

James would like to say a big THANK YOU to all of his sponsors and to all the fans for their support … here’s to 2022!
