The Peterborough Panthers number one was part of the national side which beat Denmark 53-37 in a ‘Global Challenge’ meeting at King’s Lynn.

Wright reeled off three victories from four rides as he racked up 10 points with a heat 13 pass on locally-based Danish number one Niels Kristian Iversen being his stand-out contribution.

Wright’s exploits helped to ensure a winning start as Great Britain bosses for two former Panthers riders – Simon Stead and Olly Allen.
