Former British champion Brad Anderson is to race a two-stroke Yamaha YZ250 alongside Lewis Gregory as part of the GL12 team in Sunday's European 300cc championship at Loket in the Czech Republic. And if all goes well, he may do the final round of the series a week later at Lommel in Belgium.

Ando is to ride the YZ as part of an agreement reached between GL12 and the MBO team he races for in the British championships. He said: "It's just for a bit of fun, just to see what it's like. If it's any good, I may do some more."

Although he's raced EVO two-strokes in events like the Farleigh Castle Vets MX of Nations event, the last time he raced a two-stroke in a current championship was a Yamaha YZ250 in the DEP championship. "It was at Tom Church's track at Marshfield a long time ago!" he said.
