WOLVERHAMPTON’s representatives endured mixed nights in Monday’s 2018 British Final.

Local lad Ashley Morris battled much harder than his three point tally suggests, while Rory Schlein was pipped to a semi-final spot, missing out by a single point.

But Kyle Howarth was able to qualify for the semis after a solid ten point haul from his programmed rides.

And despite temporarily leading, he eventually found himself at the back of the pack in his home city.

Howarth said: “Every heat I had was such a hard race.

“I had last pick in the semi and I ended up with gate four which was always going to be a task.

“It was a shame to do all the hard work, get to that semi and then get knocked out. But all-in-all it was a great night.

“It was some nice progress for me, it’s a stepping stone, I’ve done myself proud and I can keep my head held high.”

King’s Lynn captain Robert Lambert was crowned this year’s British Champion and will now be wild-card at the Grand Prix in Cardiff on July 21.

Meanwhile, Wolverhampton resume their Premiership campaign at Somerset on Wednesday (June 13, 7.30).
