World No.6 Robert Lambert set his sights on a second national title as all three of Britain’s Speedway GP riders line-up at the Attis Insurance Sports Division British Championship Final in Manchester on Saturday, June 8.

Lambert has not appeared in the British Final since he topped the podium in 2018, with Woffinden competing for the first time since winning his third title in 2015. Bewley is seeking his third straight British Championship on his Rowe Motor Oil Premiership home track, having claimed the crown in 2022 and 2023.

The event looks set to offer the SGP Brits a competitive warm-up for GB’s FIM Speedway of Nations Final showdown there on Saturday, July 13, when they face the winners of the two Semi-Finals, which take place in Manchester on July 9 and 10.

The stakes are also high for the trio’s British title rivals as the highest-placed non-SGP rider will earn the wild card for the FIM Speedway GP of Great Britain – Cardiff at Principality Stadium on August 17.

Lambert can’t wait for what’s set to be the most competitive British Championship Final in recent memory. He said: “All the GP boys are in, and all the top Brits are going to be heading straight to Manchester on Saturday, June 8 to battle it out. I am looking forward to it and it’s good to get some practice for the SON.

“I am looking forward to being back in it. I will try and push for that second win. It would be pretty cool to have three Speedway GP boys on the British Final podium, but any of the guys can have their day and could be fast. 

“Manchester is one of those places where anyone can be quick. We have seen it in past meetings, and I definitely need to have my thinking cap on for that one.”

The remaining 13 entrants will be confirmed in the coming days and Premiership CEO Phil Morris is pleased to have the nation’s Speedway GP stars in one of Britain’s biggest domestic events.

He said: “We’re delighted to have the three GP boys involved, and this along with the Saturday date is another step towards bringing this meeting back to the level which many of us will remember.

“With another five previous winners expected to be in the line-up, this is going to be the strongest British Final in at least a decade.

“There will be lots to go for including the wild card for Cardiff, and it’s only a month or so before the FIM Speedway of Nations which also takes place at Belle Vue, so it’s also a chance for riders to lay down a marker there.

“I’d like to place on record our thanks to Eurosport and Warner Bros. Discovery for their willingness to accommodate us in their schedule on the Saturday evening, and I really feel this is an event that everyone will be delighted to get behind.”
