SETH FOURTH IN GOLD TROPHY

LEICESTER mascot Seth Norman enjoyed the best meeting of his short career at the FIM Track Racing Youth Gold Trophy in Gdansk on Sunday.

Norman dropped just one point from four qualifying races in the 125cc event, which put him into a run-off for second place with two other riders behind winner Noah Urda.

He was up against German rider Thies Schweer and Ukrainian Makar Levishyn who both also ended up on 11, and he ended fourth overall after some controversy at the start line.

GB Youth boss Neil Vatcher explained: “Seth had last pick and ended up with the inside gate, of which the starting grid should have been split into three, meaning he could have gone more towards the favourable gate 2 position, rather than gate 1 which had been the worst gate all afternoon.

“However, the start marshal insisted he start off gate 1, and therefore unfortunately he got clamped on the first corner and never had time to recover, and missed out on a podium finish and finished in fourth place overall.”

Norman also competed in the European 125cc Youth Track Racing Cup on Saturday at the same venue, scoring seven points which saw him miss out on the semi-finals on countback.

Thanks to all the Leicester fans who donated at the recent collection to assist with Seth's costs for this trip.
