CLUB NEWS: Brother and sister on the podium in Suffolk

It’s a family affair in Suffolk with Kesgrave’s Charlie Parr dominating to become the 2016 Suffolk U9 champion and his sister, Lily, taking third spot on the podium behind Magnus Vincent also of Kesgrave.

Charlie, who was Suffolk U8 champion in 2015, has had another successful year being a member of the Kesgrave U10 team which won the British Club championship at Wednesfield in May; finishing third in both the U10 Eastern Individual championship and the South East U10 championship.

Charlie entered the sport of cycle speedway in 2014 and is now 9 years old and so will be an U10 in 2017.

A determined Lily was defending a four point advantage entering the final round of the Suffolk GP series and put in an exceptional performance to finish a single point ahead of a hard charging Oliver Baker, also from Kesgrave.

Lily was delighted to win her first trophy which she has followed up by winning a second trophy by finishing fourth in the South East U8 championship. Lily also began racing in 2014 and has just turned 7 years old and so will continue as an U8 next year.
