Meeting Result - Ben Morley Wins Vince Mapley Trophy


‘Wightlink’ Warrior Ben Morley was in a class of his own as he completed six unbeaten rides at the Smallbrook Stadium to win the third staging of speedway’s Vince Mapley Memorial Trophy, an event that saw all three podium places occupied by home riders.

Peerless in the qualifying stages, Morley and his closest rival Ben Hopwood (11 points) were drawn in separate semi-finals before coming together in a winner take all grand final. With first pick of starting position, Morley took his favoured outside berth and as the tapes rose made a text book start to secure overall victory.
