BRITISH Under-21 Final is one meeting appearing on the Lakeside Hammers 2010 fixture list that has given their co-promoter and Team Manager, Jon Cook, particular satisfaction.

The event has been staged at the Arena-Essex Raceway for the past two years and Jon Cook is delighted that the Essex based track has become the regular choice for the prestigious meeting.

Jon Cook commented on this news that the Final will stay at the Raceway for the third consecutive year by stating: "We are very excited about being allocated this meeting once again this year and for the Hammers fans there is the added interest of being able to watch one of our own riders, Jerran Hart, competing in the meeting and, hopefully, laying down a challenge to reach the rostrum. These meetings in the past have provided some excellent entertainment and a very high level of competition and we are looking forward to staging the meeting on April 16."

Jerran Hart is a Hammers full asset and will be their Official No.8 this season.
