Skipper Rory Schlein and guest Richard Lawson produced a sensational 5-1 in heat 15, inflicting the only defeat of the night on Josh Pickering in the process, as Berwick maintained their 100 per cent start to the season.

But victory was achieved at a cost, reserve Bastian Borke, who had again thrilled the crowd with his wholehearted racing, ended the night in hospital after clashing with Paco Castagna in the penultimate heat.

The Italian was Pickering’s main support on a night when two falls for Jye Etheridge stretched the Bandits to the limit but they still maintained their unbeaten run.
