"I felt a bit better tonight and felt faster out the gate. The track wasn't great to start with but we got things together and it was good.

"I think everyone had a heat win, which was positive and it was a fast night.

"I didn't feel great to start with but in the last one I felt the bike a bit more and it showed.

"I changed a few things before this meeting but there is still a bit more to work on."

Great performance from the team tonight even though Belle Vue seemed to be chucking points away under the two minute rule. Great to see Nicolai and Simon scoring well and Nick Morris could well be the new Leigh Adams what a talent at just 19. Steve Worrall looked quick and had a fabulous evening. Keep this up and we will do OK and obviously Roscoe has had words and it showed on the track.
