RESULT: PREMIERSHIP PAIRS, R5

Thursday October 27, 2022
PETERBOROUGH finished third in Thursday’s round of the Premiership Pairs at Belle Vue – but the night ended in a spectacular crash for No.1 Chris Harris.

The Crendon Panthers were yards away from claiming a place in the Final in their semi clash with Ipswich as Harris and Benjamin Basso held second and third places, with Jason Doyle in front and Erik Riss at the back.

Riss was chasing Basso but the Dane did have control of his position – but on the very last bend, Harris went wide, clipped the fence and was thrown off the back of his bike.

That meant Ipswich were handed a 6-3 and a place in the Final, and although Harris did thankfully manage to walk away, he was signed out of the meeting with concussion, which will force him out of Monday’s final round at Leicester.

Hosts Belle Vue went on to win the meeting, defeating Ipswich in the Final, meaning they retain a mathematical chance of taking the overall title in the last round.
