WALKER TAKES SECOND IN ESTONIA

June 20th, 2018.



Teenager Harry Walker produced a career-best second overall at the penultimate round of the European Championship in Estonia last Sunday, ensuring he still has a chance of nicking the title at the final round next month.


Walker backed up a fourth in the opening 30-minute moto at Kivioli with a hard-fought second in the second race, meaning he goes to the final round at Stelpe in Latvia on July the 29th just 24 points behind the series leader, Christopher Tveraen of Norway, and 17 behind the reigning European Champion, Kevin Saar of Estonia. A total of 50 points are up for grabs at the final round.

Tveraen was in superb and dominant form in Estonia, around what he admits is his favourite track of the year, rarely being headed and winning the qualifying race and both motos in style. 

Third overall was local Wildcard, Martin Adamson, who will be familiar to British fans after he finished second in the 2014 ACU British 250 Championship after a season-long battle with Bailey Edwards.
