Heat 11
Riss, Pickering, Lambert, Morris

Result: Riss, Lambert, Morris, Pickering (56.9) 3-3 (33-33)

Erik FTG but all the action was behind him.
Lambert at the back went round Josh on Lap2 Bend 2 but kept getting squeezed by Morris allowing Josh to come back at him twice. Lambert somehow found space to fire round Morris on the last bend to pick up second.

KJ not sure how he stayed up. A skilled nutter!!.

Heat 12
Wells, Pickering, Rose, Hopwood

Result: Pickering, Wells, Hopwood, Rose (F/x) (58.9) 5-1 (38-34)

Josh replaces Mitchell. Race to be rerun without Rose.
Josh gates but Rose mucks up the apex of bends 1/2 and Hopwood clips him on the way to the air fence. Both Diamonds falling. Rose excluded.

Both Diamonds now up after a few minutes on ground. The bad news is that Lewis Rose has a possible collarbone injury and Ben Hopwood has pain in his wrist. Best wishes to both riders.

Its now raining again !

Delay while we await the arrival of the "real" ambulance.

KJ senses an abandonment.

Update at 21.20. Rain easing and racing to recommence in 10-15 minutes.

A few solo laps by the tractor and here come the track staff.

Rerun - FTG and comfy.

Heat 15
Masters, Riss, Lindgren, Lambert

Result: Masters, Lambert, Lindgren, Riss (F/x) (57.4) 3-3 (49-41)

Diamonds take 2 & 4 .

Yet more drama. Diamonds on a 5-1 when Erik chucks his sunlounger into the air fence on bend 4 and is excluded. He gets up straight away and on goes the two minutes. Should have stayed down until the 10pm curfew. Silly boy says KJ.

Rerun - Sam FTG. Fredrik's bruv had a hissy fit on the start line, not happy with Sam's gate position. He spent the last three laps giving gestures to the crowd and Jim Syme (the start marshall) He then goes back for another chat after the race. "Absolute twat" says KJ.
