Despite a gruelling race schedule of four meetings in four nights Bomber flew out to Poland early on Saturday morning to take his place in the GP Challenge Final at Rybnik aiming for a top three spot to secure his 2016 GP position.
He needed a win in his last ride to finish on 11 and qualify and the Bomber did not disappoint with a superb last bend to pass Przemslaw Pawlicki and secure his GP ride for next year.
In a run-off for 2nd he lost out to Piotr Pawlicki
After that last gasp victory over Shamek to deny the former Coventry rider a spot Bomber said, " that was probably one of the best last bends I've had in my career, bar Cardiff 2007."COVENTRY skipper Chris Harris will be a Grand Prix rider once again in 2016.
The Buildbase Bees’ favourite successfully negotiated the cut-throat GP Challenge in Rybnik, Poland on Saturday, taking one of just three qualifying places available.
He joins Polish youngsters Bartosz Zmarzlik and Piotr Pawlicki as confirmed starters for next year - meaning he can plan ahead with the pressure off to gain ground on the top eight this season, and without the need to await the series organisers’ four selections.
Harris finished with 11 points, one behind meeting winner Zmarzlik, but it took a superb ride in Heat 18 to clinch his place as he got the better of the Pawlicki brothers, who initially led the race.
It proved to be vital with his late move on Przemyslaw Pawlicki leaving the former Bees rider as one of four riders on ten points, just one short of a qualification place.
Piotr Pawlicki defeated Harris in a run-off for second place but the main job of the evening was already done by that stage.
