BIRMINGHAM will have a father and son duo racing in today’s (Sunday) National Trophy fixture at Buxton (3pm).

Gary, dad of teenage sensation Leon, will ride at No.7 as a 3.00 unattached Rider.

Senior Flint, now aged 36, last raced in 2007 and had spells with four clubs, including Sunday’s opponents.

Edwards Plumbing Brummies boss Laurence Rogers said: “Gary heard that we were struggling to find a final rider for the trip to Buxton and during a ‘phone call he mentioned getting back on a bike himself.

“We took him seriously and next thing we knew he was off for a practice on Saturday afternoon!

“He’s now taking it seriously as well because he’s got his license and who knows this may be the start of a comeback.

“We contacted a fair few youngsters but there were so many unavailable this afternoon, so thanks to Gary for stepping in at short notice - watching him and Leon in Heat 14 will be a moment to savour.”
