LEWIS Bridger is hoping to continue his stunning start to the season when he takes his place in the British Final at Poole on Wednesday, May 20.
Bridger won the British Under-21 title at Lakeside ahead of Tai Woffinden and is now keen to add the senior title to his roll of honour.
He's also made a great start to the season for Eastbourne in the Sky Sports Elite League.
Bridger, 19, said: “It's great to achieve such a big thing so early in the season. It's nice to be able to add that to my portfolio.

“It's great especially as all the limelight was on Tai. He was rated over me but I have started the season so well. To go undefeated in the under-21s is a great feeling to have and shows I am on the right track. I concentrated 110% and I made it happen.”
“I wasn't aware of having tears in my eyes after winning it but Tai said the same and it obviously meant a lot to me.

“It's a great feeling knowing that I can go to every meeting now and be announced as the British under-21 champion.
“It is also great for the club and it is nice to add my silverware to what we won last season.
“I would like to thank the club because without Eastbourne speedway I wouldn't be where I am now because they gave me the break in the first place.
“I also have to thank Neville Tatum, my engine tuner, who has done some awesome equipment for me this season.”
