News from Coventry Bees and Storm

Coventry Buildbase Bees Elite League play-off hopes have been hit by the recent spell of bad weather and at the time of writing they have still to find out who their final opponents will be after the Poole – King’s Lynn match was rained off for a second time last Wednesday.

A third attempt to run is due to take place tomorrow (Wednesday) and if a result is obtained Bees will race the first leg of the final on Friday with the second leg on Monday.

As the first leg of the final could not be raced last Monday Storm filled the slot with the first leg of their National League play-off final but this also became a victim of the bad weather and has yet to be rearranged.

Former Coventry rider Greg Hancock became World Champion on Saturday night in the final round at Torun. This will be the third time that the 44-year-old American has taken the title. Second place overall was Krzysztof Kasprzak with Nicki Pedersen beating reigning champion Tai Woffinden for third place after a run-off.

Chris Harris once again finished down in the lower half of the field with four points. He has retained his place in the competition and has promised to work hard this winter to improve on his overall performance.


If all goes well Bees will be riding the first leg of the play-off final on Friday with the second leg on Monday.

It is still hoped to run a coach to wherever the second leg takes place and bookings can be made on Friday or by telephoning 01788 562132.

The Storm go to Cradley on Tuesday for what will now be the first leg of their play-off final.
