Mear in control heading into 2018. Pitbike Speedway Championships Round 3 – Race Report & Results
Speedway Ace Rob Mear finally brings his A game (and cheque book) 💸 to the PitBike speedway world championships. Mear upped his game after some new bike modifications to take control of the overall championship standings with a hard fought 2nd place today but still unable to head Edward Kennett. Kennett who has won 2 rounds on the bounce has pulled himself up to 8th overall but his absence from Rd1 has possibly cost him the 2017/2018 world title.

Mitchel Godden came home 3rd and resurrected his bid for championship glory after a duff result in GP2. Charley Powell secured another strong points haul and has moved up the overall standings, and is now only 2 points behind Mear in 2nd. De-throned championship leader Brandon Freemantle however was plagued with bike troubles and watched his championship points buffer disintegrate in seconds scoring a DNF in heat 1 and only finishing 5th in the B Final and 10th overall.

Championship Overall Standings after 3 Rounds
Other Results: Team Pinch smashed the hopes of Team Vipers 🐍 in the grudge 7vs7 speedway match second half. Kennett unsurprisingly pinned a 12 point max but the surprise pairing for Pinch of Godden & Powell banged in successive 5-1’s and unfortunately missed out on a 3rd as Goddens bike suffered a thrown chain. Vipers mustered a late comeback with Mear on tactical for Vipers youngster Chad, but Team Pinch’s quality shone through for victory.
