|Sun 13th May||Battle of Britain 2 - North & Scotland v Midlands||Astley & Tyldesley|
It finished honours even in the Supertrax Battle of Britain matches between the North & Scotland and the Midlands at a hot and sunny Gin Pit on Sunday. Two hard fought matches were held, on a track which quickly dried out, despite heavy watering before each match.
The Midlands were the undefeated champions in last year's junior series, but the North & Scotland raced to a convincing 114-83 win. All eight North & Scotland riders scored well and were all race winners, with captain Ed Morton losing only to Ewan Hancox in heat 17.

The Midlands exacted revenge with a big 115-79 win in the senior match that followed. Just four points separated the teams after heat 6, before the Midlands put in a strong run to open up a big lead. Matt Smith and Paul Heard both raced unbeaten, with solid support throughout. Pawel Idziorek, Adam Watson, Kris Ramsden and Reece Pollitt all won a race each for the North & Scotland, but 16 race winners by the Midlands tells its story.
