Greg explained: “I missed out on the semi-finals due to a countback, as I was sitting tied with 10 points. An electrical fault in the first race cost me my semi-final but still, after some good racing, I was voted the most entertaining rider of the day – something I look forward to doing this season when the crowds are allowed back.”

His first meeting is with Berwick Bullets’ national league team, behind closed doors, on May 1.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
