    Background: JOEL ROBERT, 19-YEAR-OLD BELGIAN SOLDIER ON WEEKEND LEAVE, YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) WON THE BRITISH 250CC MOTO CROSS GRAND PRIX AT CADWELL PARK, NEAR LOUTH, LINCOLNSHIRE.

    IT WAS THE TOUGHEST AND MOST SPECTACULAR WIN OF HIS SHORT INTERNATIONAL CAREER. THE 21,500 CROWD SAW ROBERT SNATCH VICTORY WITH A GREAT SECOND RIDE AFTER A DRAMATIC BATTLE WITH BRITAIN'S DAVE BICKERS. BICKERS, HAVING TROUBLE WITH HIS GEARS, WON THE FIRST OF THE TWO 18-LAP RACES. BUT ROBERT ROARED HOME IN THE NEXT RIDE TO WIN ON OVERALL CLASSIFICATION.

    ROBERT INCREASED HIS LEAD IN THE OVERALL CHAMPIONSHIP RACE - THIS WAS HIS FIFTH GRAND PRIX VICTORY - AND HE NOW HAS A TOTAL OF 50 POINTS.

    ROBERT (No. 3) RODE A C.Z. MACHINE. OTHERS FEATURED ON FILM ARE: BULTO (No. 28, SPAIN, RIDING A BULTACO), PARERA PEDRO P1 (No. 27, SPAIN, MONTESA), VLASTIMIL VALEK (No. 5, CZECH., C.Z.), ERNAR SANDE (No. 26, NORWAY, HOSQVARNA), AND TORSTEN HALLMAN AND OLLE PETTERSSEN (NOS. 29 AND 30, BOTH SWEDEN, BOTH HUSQVARNAS).
