As the 2017 HSBC UK | Cycle Speedway Elite Grand Prix Series party crashes into the South East and East region this weekend, Newport's Ben Mould and Sheffield's Ed Morton are currently heading the standings with just two rounds remaining.

Mould's lead, after a first and third place finish in the opening rounds, is healthy but, with only three of the four rounds counting towards each rider's overall score, at least five other riders are still in with a shot at the title - if they can make the podium in Great Blakenham.

Round two winner Josh Brooke and runner up Lukas Nowacki will still be in contention, as well as Lewis Osborne, Myke Grimes and Paul Heard if things go their way in Suffolk, while Charlie Rumbold still has an outside chance.

Mould is very much in the driving seat though, knowing one more win could seal it from the final two rounds for the British Champion.

In the elite junior class, round one winner Ed Morton's lead is just two points over his closest rival and round two winner, Pierce Bacon.

Both riders are in a strong position after good finishes in the first two rounds. Adam Watson, Brandon Whetton and Carl Parfitt are all still in with a chance after securing at least one podium apiece.

The event begins at midday at Great Blakenham Village Hall (IP6 0NJ), the elite junior class take to the track first with the elite men's following at approximately 2pm.
