Tiffany is new champion

Tiffany Collins, the 15-year-old cycle speedway rider from the Hethersett Hawks/Swinton & Co Club, was crowned British U18 Girls' Grand Prix champion after finishing third in the final national round at East Newport in Wales.

Three wins in her qualifying races put her into the final where she came from the back to reach second place, only to fall when challenging for the lead on the final bend.

She limped over the line for third place but the 18 points this achieved brought her total over the eight rounds to 154, 15 points more than her nearest rival.
