Great Britain booked their first World Cup final appearance since 2010 by winning in front of a packed Norfolk Arena this evening.

An estimated crowd of 6,000 cheered GB to speedway glory in King’s Lynn as they finished first in Event One to book automatic qualification for next Saturday’s final in Poland.

USA finished second with 37 points, seven behind the hosts, and Australia (36) third to reach Thursday’s race-off which provides them and two other countries with another chance to meet Britain, Poland and one other qualifier from Event Two in the showcase.

Italy (10) finished fourth on the night with only two of their four riders scoring points.
