Bewley Making Steady Progress


Dan Bewley says he already feels like he belongs in the British Premiership after three successful appearances for Belle Vue in which he’s scored an impressive, combined total of 16+5 points.
 
The 17-year old has taken the plunge into racing full-time in the top flight in only his second season of speedway, and has proved a formidable force even to some of the most experienced names.
 
In the Rentruck Aces’ recent KOC thumping of Poole, the youngster proved his worth amongst his team mates and made short work of such opponents as Nicolai Klindt and Brady Kurtz.

When quizzed about his achievements so far, Bewley said: “I’m really enjoying my racing with the Aces. I feel comfortable and I feel like I belong in this league. It’s been a great start to the season.
 
“I don't think it’s too much more difficult than riding in the Championship. Some might disagree but that’s just how I feel. I’m just glad to be riding my bike and keeping myself as busy as possible.
 
“I actually feel like I’m making better progress in this league already so hopefully I can keep it up.
 
“I had some good rides and some decent times. Riding all three leagues means a lot of meetings for me this year. But Steve [Worrall] has done it, and learned a lot, so hopefully I can do the same.”
 
Another man who has sampled seasons split between all three levels of British Speedway is Belle Vue captain Craig Cook, who has tipped young Bewley for an extensive and glittering career.
 
He added: “I’ve known Dan for a few years now. I‘ve watched him develop through motocross and for anyone who’s not seen him ride before, I can tell you he is a very talented individual.
 
“He’s not only a good rider but a great thinker, and you need those kind of smarts to be successful. He’s got a mature head on his shoulders and I would even tip him to be a future world champion.”
 
The Rentruck Aces return to action at the National Speedway Stadium this coming Good Friday, April 14, when they welcome back to Manchester their rivals from the Midlands, Wolverhampton.
 
Tickets are available online via the club’s website, www.bellevueaces.co (same price as race day), while box office and telephone orders are also available Tuesday-Thursday, 10:00am - 4:00pm.
 
Stadium officials are expecting bumper crowds for this popular bank holiday fixture and are urging anyone wishing to attend to purchase their tickets in advance to avoid queues on the day.
