BOMBER'S BACK-UP

British racer Chris Harris is delighted to have Swindon team manager Alun Rossiter on hand to fire him up for the SGP series.

Team Great Britain racer Chris Harris is delighted to have Swindon team manager Alun Rossiter on hand to fire him up for the SGP series and admits “I probably haven’t been motivated enough at the meetings.”

Rosco joins Team Bomber in the pits for the FIM Swedish Grand Prix in Gothenburg’s Ullevi Stadium tonight. Harris had his former Coventry boss with him at the Czech SGP in Prague on May 12 and collected a season-best point haul of six.

But with the Cornishman 15th in the World Championship on 14 points, he will be keen to fight his way up the standings by reaching the business end of tonight’s meeting.

With nine rounds remaining, Bomber has plenty of time to improve his position, and he hopes Rosco can help spur him up the ladder and keep his head in the right place.

Rosco is good. He’s great at getting my mind right and very good at motivating me.

He said: “Rosco is good. He’s great at getting my mind right and very good at motivating me. I probably haven’t been motivated enough at the meetings yet this season. He’s a bit of a character as well. He can be serious, but he can have a bit of a laugh and joke, which is great.”

Harris is back in the Czestochowa side in Poland and has been scoring solidly for Coventry and Vastervik. He goes into the Swedish SGP with his self-belief on the up.

“I’m pleased with how things are going,” he said. “I’m slowly getting things together and getting my confidence back. A confident rider scores points, so I’m looking forward to tonight.

“The disappointing thing is I’m out after every track grade, which can sometimes work against you. But whatever we’ve got, the boys will know how to set the bike up.”

Harris has never scored more than the six points he bagged in 2010 in his four previous visits to the Ullevi Stadium. But he said: “It’s a nice track and I’ve always enjoyed it.

“I’ve had some good races here and some bad ones too. The track looks good. All the boys and myself are really raring to go.”
