Great Britain heroes Robert Lambert and Craig Cook have been seeded into this year’s British Championship Final in Manchester on July 29.

The duo joined forces with triple world champion Tai Woffinden to take the Lions into the Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations Finals with victory at Race Off 2 in Manchester last Saturday.

With Woffinden not taking part in the British Championship this year, reigning champion Lambert and Cook, who was third in 2018, will definitely fancy their chances of topping the podium.

They are joined in getting seeded spots by fellow GB Monster Energy SON squad members Chris Harris and Dan Bewley, who was runner-up last season.

Seven-time British champion Scott Nicholls, Aussie-born British licence holder Rory Schlein, Richard Lawson, Edward Kennett, Adam Ellis and 2016 winner Danny King all take their places at the National Speedway Stadium as well.

The remaining six spots will be handed out at the semi-final in Redcar on May 31, featuring former British Championship runner-up Steven Worrall and his brother Richie, plus the likes of Kyle Howarth, Zach Wajtknecht, Josh Bates and Charles Wright.

SEMI-FINAL DRAW: 1 Paul Starke, 2 Jason Garrity, 3 Stefan Nielsen, 4 Kyle Howarth, 5 Steve Worrall, 6 Josh Auty, 7 Kyle Newman, 8 Richie Worrall, 9 Charles Wright, 10 Ben Barker, 11 Ashley Morris, 12 Ben Morley, 13 Zach Wajtknecht, 14 Tom Bacon, 15 Josh Bates, 16 Lewis Kerr.

BRITISH FINAL SEEDS: Robert Lambert, Rory Schlein, Chris Harris, Dan Bewley, Craig Cook, Richard Lawson, Edward Kennett, Scott Nicholls, Adam Ellis, Danny King.
