FORMER FAVOURITES IN BIG OPENER

Monday February 24, 2020
PETERBOROUGH Speedway will celebrate their 50th anniversary with a little help from their friends!

The season opener is on Sunday March 15 (2pm) and the club can now confirm former favourites Charles Wright, the current British Champion, Emil Grondal and Simon Lambert have all accepted invites.

They’ll race against 2020 Crendon Panthers stars Niels-Kristian Iversen, Rohan Tungate, Hans Andersen, Chris Harris and Michael Palm Toft in a mouthwatering line-up plus the two remaining Peterborough riders to be named soon.

Club co-promoter Carl Johnson said: “We were naturally disappointed not to be able to keep Charles and he will be a big loss to us, but he’s moved to his local club in Belle Vue.

“When we started planning the meeting we promised a combination of Peterborough past and present and it’s taking shape nicely.”

The format will be 20 heats with the top four through to the Grand Final.

Meanwhile the club have finalised details for their press and practice day for the previous day, Saturday March 14.
