The Redcar Bears came out 47-43 winners over the Glasgow Tigers in a pulsating Sunday evening encounter at the Media Prima Arena.

The Bears heat 15 heroes were the heat leader pairing of Jake Allen and Charles Wright who roared past former Grand Prix star Craig Cook to take the 3 league points for the Bears. 

Wright top scored for the Bears as they sit fourth in the Speedway Championship table with just one defeat in their first five meetings of the season. 

Speaking to the club's media after the game, Bears promoter Jade Mudgeway said "Full credit to the lads tonight, they got stuck in when things weren’t going our way and that is the mark of a team.

"What pleased me was that we didn’t roll over and hand it to them, we made a few technical changes and things came good in the end.

"I’m really proud of the team for digging deep. Even though we had some mechanical issues we didn’t let that affect us and that was really impressive.

"I would have actually chosen gates 1+3 if I had the choice but when you have a team of racers like we do who are willing to ride the fence for you it’s fantastic!"

Up next for the Bears in the Speedway Championship is a trip to the Leicester Lions on Saturday.
