Midshires Grasstrack Club caught up with James Shanes as he started out on the 2019 Grasstrack season.
James was in fine form with a majestic victory in the opening meeting of the year at Ledbury.
James said, “he was looking to have another good year on the grass but his goal was to regain the ACU British Masters title and the FIME European Grasstrack Championships this year, if he could”.
He has been drawn to ride in the second Semi Final of the European’s being held by Midshires on the 23rd June at Leamington Spa CV31 1XJ.
James said, “Really looking forward to this one. It is going to be a tough meeting with Europe’s best from Holland, Germany, France, Sweden, Czech Republic plus four other Brits. My Brummies & Swindon Speedway team mate Zack Wajtknecht, Andrew Appleton, Paul Hurry and Paul Cooper all aiming for a top nine finish to qualify for the final being held at Bad Hersfeld, Germany”.
Midshires Grasstrack Club wishes James every success for the coming season and look forward to seeing him on the 23rd June.
