Huntingdon racer Danny King remains determined to reach the Speedway World Cup final.
King scored 10 points as the Brits had to play second fiddle to Australia in Event Two at King’s Lynn on Monday night.
The men from Down Under claimed victory on 47 points with Britain amassing 43. America took third position on 22 and Latvia brought up the rear after managing just nine.
Great Britain now go into the race-off in Denmark on Thursday to battle for the one remaining slot in Saturday’s final. America, Poland and Russia provide the opposition and King is in confident mood.
He said: “It was a good meeting on Monday and we gave it our all. One or two little things went against us and I felt we were unlucky not to beat the Aussies.
“I’m happy with how I rode and I’m looking forward to the Race-Off and I think we’ve got a good chance of making the final.”
The race-off winners will join hosts Denmark and Event One winners Sweden in the final.
