Ioan Watts (under-tens) put in a great effort against a strong field and was second in the C final for eight GP points.

Action from the Lions' latest fixture

In the under-12s Dylan Geer and Harry Ridley found the larger fast track tough, but they did give maximum effort.

Ridley was second in the C final for eight GP points and Geer was fourth for six points.

In the under-14s, Paul Edwards was joined by Harry Sefton and Kai Lopez-Davis.

The inexperienced trio faced a strong field of experienced riders but Edwards and Sefton both made the B final.

Edwards was second to take away 13 GP points and Sefton was third for 12.

Lopez-Davis, in his first ever competitive racing, managed the A final and was fourth to claim 16 GP points.
