Billy Hamill blasted back to top form against his parent club to lead Wolverhampton to a 53-43 win over Coventry at Monmore Green last night.
Hamill dropped just one point in five outings, beaten by Bees skipper Scott Nicholls in Heat 11, as he regained his customary home track form after a blip last week.
Wolves' victory was based on the foundations of a whirlwind start. Despite tricky, drizzly conditions, Peter Karlsson smashed the track record in Heat 1, lowering the mark to 55.05 seconds.
Two 5-1s in the first four races put Wolves in full control, with Coventry unable to field a rider in three heats due to the late arrival of Martin Smolinski, who had travel problems.
The visitors staged some-thing of a comeback as both Nicholls and Rory Schelin won tactical rides for double points in the second half of the meeting, but Wolves secured their win when Hamill and Karlsson combined for maximum points in Heat 13.
