Huntingdon racer Danny King has seen his dream of becoming a World Championship rider dashed for another year.

King bowed out of the qualification programme at the opening stage in a rain-shortened quarter-final in Germany on Monday.

He managed four points from his three rides at Abensburg before the event was abandoned with the result standing.

Only the top seven finishers advanced and King was ninth.
