A bit of a track inspection going on

8:36pm

Heat seven: Kennett (tac), North, Lambert, Greenwood; 72.17 – 2-7 (26-19)
Kennett goes in black and white and wins in the wet. The track is really greasy.

8:33pm

Another Brummies tacitcal sees Kennett go in black and white. Rosco would have been better off leaving Worrall in.

Reserve change with Greenwood in for Worrall.

8:29pm

Heat six: Skornicki, Gustafsson, Morris, Barker (exc); 69.99 – 3-3 (24-12)

After Barker is excluded for falling on his own, Skornicki makes an easy gate to win. Morris is close to falling off after going up on his back wheel but manages to keep it down.

8:25pm

Two minutes back on as Morris and Gustafsson go against just Adam Skornicki in the re-run.

8:24pm

Barker took a knock to his hip and is being looked at by the paramedic, which is why we have a bit of a delay.

8:20pm

Ben Barker being taken back to the pits in an ambulance.

8:16pm

Barker still down getting a bit of treatment,

8:13pm

Barker tries to storm around the outside and hits the deck. Nobody touched him and he's out. Oh dear.

8:10pm

Barker going in black and white

8:09pm

Very strong start from the Robins, showing they mean business.

8:08pm

Heat five: Batchelor, Kildemand, King, Kennett; 67.11 – 5-1 (21-9)
Two great gates see the Robins home again.

8:03pm

Heat four: Worrall, Gustafsson, Starke, Katajisto; 68.48 – 5-1 (16-8)
Great team riding from the Robins duo as they cruise to a 5-1.

8:02pm

Katajisto told to keep still at the start after moving too early.

7:59pm

Reserve change already, with Worrall in for Greenwood.

7:59pm

Heat three: Batchelor, Morris, Skornicki, King; 67.49 – 5-1 (11-7)
Morris lifts at the start but still is able to do really well to cut under both King and Skornicki to join his skipper for a 5-1.

7:54pm

Greenwood had mechanical problems there and was well adrift when he pulled off the track.

7:54pm

Heat two: Starke, Worrall, Lambert, Greenwood; 68.61 – 2-4 (6-6)
Worrall chases Starke all the way but can’t catch him. Greenwood pulls off the track on the second lap.

7:49pm

Heat one: Kildemand, Barker, North, Katijisto; 67.46 – 4-2 (4-2)
Kildemand, Barker and North all make really good starts but the Robins number one is able to swoop around the outside for the win.

7:45pm

Dak makes a bit of a jump and the red lights are on. Barker gets a warning to stay still.

7:42pm

Here we go then, heat number one is imminent.

7:37pm

We've had the parade and should be starting soon.

Darryl Ritchings is in the pits this evening as he returns to a speedway track for the first time since his horror crash last month which left him in a coma for a fortnight.

He's looking really well.
