Speedway double header postponed

It was almost inevitable from the outset that Bees’ Sunday double header against Leicester would fall victim to the weather, writes Alan Goodman.

The postponement came early on Sunday morning with Leicester quick to arrange a restaging this Sunday at 6pm. Later in the day the Coventry management announced that due to the unavailability of Brandon Stadium on Sunday, their restaging would now become the second leg and would take place on Friday October 25 at 7.30 p.m.

This Friday Coventry stages the prestigious Brandonapolis meeting which features 16 top-class riders racing over 20 heats, a semi-final and a winner-takes-all final. Riders confirmed so far are; Hans Andersen, Lewis Bridger, Ryan Fisher, Kenneth Hansen, Chris Harris, Niels Kristian Iversen, Jakub Jamrog, Danny King, Scott Nicholls, Bjarne Pedersen, Sebastian Ulamek and Grzegorz Zengota.

The meeting starts at the usual time of 7.30pm.
