<p><strong>Gold medals for the British Speed Team at the 2013 European Championships.</strong></p>
<p>British Speed team member Ken Morrissey has retained his European crown won in 2011 in Poland and is the 2013 European Champion with a best speed of 301.5 kph.&nbsp; The Speed Team Gold medal goes to the British team of Ken Morrissey, Paul Eisner and Peter Halman who are the 2013 European Championship team.</p>
<p>Ken made his marvellous 301.5 kph in the first round; Paul&rsquo;s best flight of 298.7 kph was made in the second round and Peter&rsquo;s best flight of 298.2 kph was made in the third round.&nbsp; This was a blistering Championship in more ways than one: shade temperatures of 40<sup>o</sup>C plus stiff competition in the shape of the home team Hungarians and the Ukrainians.&nbsp; But despite the heat, Peter, Paul and Ken were at the training track for untold hours testing &amp; training and it all paid off with another team gold medal.</p>
<p>As one Italian was overheard to say &ldquo;this British team is the best ever in the world, even better than the Russian teams&rdquo; (who dominated F2A Speed for many years).</p>
<p>So the F2A team are bringing home two Speed gold medals with the team gold coming home for the <strong>16th year in a row!</strong>&nbsp; Add this to the <strong>second consecutive individual gold for Ken</strong> and the whole performance is unprecedented in the annals of F2A.</p>
