Just 6 seasons ago Ray France was riding in the JJ and now he is a GP winner after roaring to victory as a Wild Card in the GB Grand Prix. Ray was just delighted to receive the nomination and was using the meeting as yet another step on the ladder for him. As the meeting progressed you could see his confidence growing and he looked more and more at home amongst the elite stars of the sport. He settled for second place in the semi-final showing his maturity in not going all out to pass Sven Svensson. In the Final he made a dream gate, rode a superb line and took the chequered flag with no trouble. This has really whetted his appetite and in a few weeks he is in the GP challenge semi-final hoping to get to the challenge final where anything can happen. We knew Ray was a star of the future from a young age and have nurtured him through to where he is now. The world is his oyster. Surely he will get a WTC spot this season and has given the England team manager a big nudge.
In a great night for Kings Lynn riders Tibor Nemecek finished third in the GP and stretched his lead at the top of the standings to 17 points. With only 2 rounds to go surely only a disaster is going to stop him being crowned World Champion.
