Swindon Speedway are gearing up for a festival of speedway this Sunday.

The club are delighted to stage two meetings featuring the future of the sport – and they are hoping for a good response from fans.

Swindon Sprockets, backed by adaptive living, host Kent in a National League challenge at 4pm followed by the next round of the CFS Filtration British Youth Championship.

And that means a staggering 57 races for fans to enjoy with gates opening at 3pm.

The event is sure to be an emotional one following the serious injuries sustained by youth racer Sam Norris last weekend.

British youth co-ordinator Neil Vatcher said: “In light of the injury to Sam Norris last weekend, this weekend will be very emotional, but all the riders are keen to show Sam their support by putting on a good show on track.

“The quality of the Youth Championship now is that the Belle Vue Colts number one Jordan Palin will be competing, along with fellow National League riders Dan and Joe Thompson and Harry McGurk.

“I hope supporters turn out in force at both tracks (Belle Vue on Saturday and the Abbey on Sunday) to show their support for the youngsters.”
