Kenny Ingalls: Riding in Grand Prix qualifier

Ingalls will be racing at Berwick, the track where he suffered a serious broken leg two years ago, against riders such as Chris Harris, Krzysztof Buczkowski, Danny King and current Premier League riders champion Sam Masters.

The border track got the chance to hold the prestigious event after upgrading facilities and installing a new Polyfoam safety barrier over the winter in order to gain a licence to stage the meeting.

Ingalls said he is not expecting to qualify from the meeting but hopes the experience gained will help him for the Comets in the future. He said: “It should be a fun meeting and it will be another little bit of experience for me.

“I am going to have some fun. I have raced against and beaten Chris Harris around Berwick before so I should be all right.”

Ingalls has just returned from a shoulder injury but has not had time on the bike as all of Workington matches last week against Sheffield, Plymouth and Glasgow fell victim to the weather.

He said: “It has helped and hindered me. It means I have had a little bit more healing time but I also want to get back on the bike.

“I haven’t had a chance to do any practicing but I have been getting my equipment ready and set up for the weekend. The break has given me a bit of extra time to get more comfortable on the bike and I just want to get back in the groove but I am not going to push the issue.”

Workington have rearranged their trip to Glasgow for tomorrow with the Workington Speedway Supporters Club running a bus to the meeting.

The Comets will still be missing Kyle Howarth after he failed to recover from the injury he recieved at Berwick last Monday, Sheffield’s Joe Haines his replacement.

The Comets have also rearranged a couple of their other fixtures and will see them take on Newcastle at Derwent Park on June 30, Berwick on September 9 while their planned trip to Somerset has been brought forward to July 13.
