PETERBOROUGH are celebrating the news they have been handed a plum national event once again.

Panthers will stage the Championship Fours on Sunday June 23 at the East of England Arena.

The event is traditionally a festival of racing on one of the fastest racetracks in British Speedway and riders of international calibre like Scott Nicholls, Danny King, Rory Schlein and Craig Cook will be doing battle.

Panthers boss Carl Johnson said: “Anyone who has been to this event down the years knows what a great occasion it is and everyone here at Peterborough Speedway is delighted to be staging it again.

“It just adds to the excitement building. We have a top class new signing coming in over the next few days, we have a season of top flight racing with the return of club icon Hans Andersen and now confirmation we have the Fours.

“It’s great news for Peterborough Speedway and great news for the city of Peterborough as we bring national recognition with such a major event.”
