Young Archie Freeman's latest round of the British Youth 150cc Championships didn't quite go to plan for the young gun.
 
The Newcastle Teen Print Gems teenage sensation Archie Freeman narrowly failed to make it five wins out of five in the latest round of the British Youth Speedway 150cc championship last Saturday at The National Stadium, Belle Vue, Manchester last Saturday.

Archie who has been in sensational form all summer went in to the fifth round having won all four previous meetings without dropping a single point was all revved up to add to his incredible points tally.

But, sadly, it was not to be for the up and coming youngster who the previous week had been part of an exclusive band of under-15 years old riders that had taken part in a Speedway Academy at Cardiff the day before the Senior World Championship Grand Prix.

After winning his first ride in fine style he dropped his first point of the Championship when beaten by Jack Bell in his second outing. Archie though roared back to win his next two races and comfortably qualify for the Final with 11 points.

Unfortunately, in that Final he suffered an engine failure whilst well on his way to winning the fifth ride and had to retire frustratingly from the final race. Whilst it was a disappointing way for young Archie to end the day he can take great heart from another excellent overall performance.

He now heads to the next round still as Championship leader, well-placed to take the coveted title of British Champion and still the favourite after another hard day’s racing.

Archie’s Gems partner Danny Smith who is in his first full year as a speedway rider in the same 150cc class as Archie also competed last Saturday. He only had one point to show for his efforts but was never off the pace and continues to improve as a rider with each track outing.
