Wrangle youngster Mickie Simpson rode at King’s Lynn speedway in the Ben Fund, which is a charity event to raise money for injured riders.

With four 125cc riders and a vast array of top-class speedway riders competing, the event ran well.

Mickie had a fall in his first ride and two other riders fell in race two, but they all came away unscathed and the night was a success, which hopes to raise lots of money for the charity.

Mickie also received his 2016 British Young Lions race bib, which he will wear in all championship rounds over the year.

He was also invited to ride at Peterborough speedway in the testimonial of Peterborough Panthers captain Ulrich Osterguard.

Mickie was there with four fellow 125cc riders, who put on a great show of British youth speedway.

Mickie is currently on the lookout for sponsorship.

If anyone would be interested in helping him then they are asked to email his father at simmo207@yahoo.com
