NATHAN ROBERT GREAVES
DATE OF BIRTH : 24th February 1998, Sheffield, South Yorkshire.
“I started racing grasstrack at the age of 7, but two years later decided to take my 125cc grass bike to Scunthorpe and that’s where my obsession for speedway began. From that moment on I knew exactly what I wanted to do. By the time I was 11 I had a 500cc bike and was competing in the British Youth Championships winning 4 titles along the way. Now I am doing what I love, racing my bikes in the top two tiers of British League speedway. Although the 2019 season begins competing in the Championship League only, I am totally set on putting serious points on the board for Redcar, and I am ready to grab the opportunity to double up with a Premiership side the moment that call comes. I’ll also be representing my country in the World Under 21 Individual Championship & Team Cup. I want to win, winning is everything to me. I’m fit, the kit is prepped and the team is ready to make 2019 my best season to date and continue towards my goal of becoming a World Speedway Champion.”
