BEES skipper Chris Harris is ready to put his indoor expertise to good use as he looks to breathe new life into his Speedway Grand Prix (SGP) season in Copenhagen and Cardiff in the coming weeks.

Harris heads to Denmark this Saturday determined to make his third Danish SGP final appearance, having finishing third in 2010 and fourth two years later.

And no-one will ever forget his sensational surge to victory against legends Greg Hancock, Jason Crump and Leigh Adams in the 2007 British SGP final at the Millennium Stadium.

He will be back in Cardiff on July 12 where he flies the Union flag along with Tai Woffinden and Craig Cook.

Harris feels his engines are getting faster, but with the small Copenhagen and Cardiff tracks testing technique rather than speed, Harris is hopeful he can deliver two big results.

“I enjoy Copenhagen.” said Harris. “It’s always a good venue, as well as Cardiff. I’m looking forward to them both – I look forward to them all. The indoor ones are rounds I seem to do well at and hopefully I can continue that.

“Being indoors, you don’t need all speed. It’s all about good first corners and being in the right place at the right time. It’s always tough, but I’m feeling good on the bike and the engines are working well. We’ll just keep doing what we’re doing.

“All I can do now is concentrate on what I’m doing and my racing. If I finish off well in the Grand Prix, who knows? If I can go on a good run like I did in 2010, I’ll be back in the points.

“Riders will hopefully drop points throughout the season and hopefully I will be the one picking them up for a change. It’s going to be tough. It’s a tough competition as everyone knows.

“But we’re going to be there battling. I’m feeling good on the bike now. I’ve made some changes and things are looking good. That can only bode well for the remaining rounds.”
