Big hitters Nicholls and Harris clash early on

BIG hitters Scott Nicholls and Chris Harris will clash in the opening race of the eagerly-awaited British Final at Wolverhampton on June 14.

BIG hitters Scott Nicholls and Chris Harris will clash in the opening race of the eagerly-awaited British Final at Wolverhampton on June 14.

Harris, who qualified for the event from the King’s Lynn semi-final, has been drawn in the number two racejacket and Nicholls, who is rejuvenated this season, is at number four.

That means a mouthwatering first heat in a meeting which sees Harris defending his national title – and ex-champ Nicholls is desperate to win it back!

There’s also the extra motivation of a place in the British Grand Prix at Cardiff on July 10 as the wildcard should Nicholls regain his title – or finish runner-up to Harris who is already in the SGP series.
