PETERBOROUGH racer Charles Wright says his Great Britain call-up caps ‘a dream year’.

Wright, who has been a shining light for the Crendon Panthers in a tough return to top flight racing for the city club, won the British Final in July and impressed on his Grand Prix debut in Cardiff last month.

Now he will represent his country against Denmark at King’s Lynn on Wednesday night (7.30).

“Getting a place in the Great Britain team rounds off a dream year for me really,” he said. “I couldn’t be happier the way it has gone personally.

“Obviously winning the British Championship was a breakthrough moment for me, I think everyone’s opinion of my ability changed that night. It’s what my career desperately needed, it was a proper shot in the arm for me to prove to everyone what I can do.

“Then getting the chance to race in the British Grand Prix was huge as well. Now I’m massively proud to race for my country.”

Panthers legend Hans Andersen will race for the Danes with a bumper crowd expected for a rare and much anticipated clash between two famous speedway nations.
