King's Lynn Speedway to host British Youth Championship at Adrian Flux Arena
King’s Lynn Speedway officials say they are ready to stage the fourth round of the British Youth Championship on Sunday week, August 30 (5pm).
Club bosses are keen to encourage the youngsters and it will be the first racing of the year at the Adrian Flux Arena.
Co-promoter Dale Allitt was at Scunthorpe for the first round with a restricted amount of spectators and was impressed with the way the event was handled with all tickets snapped up.
He said: “It was superbly organised at Scunthorpe and having had in-depth discussions with Keith Chapman (club owner) we are delighted to be hosting this event.
“There will be different categories with 500cc, 250cc and 125cc competition and there are some terrific young talents throughout.
“We have some good youngsters in British Speedway.
“Ticket numbers will be restricted and they are going on sale at midday on Thursday. I suggest fans snap them up quickly because once they’re gone there will be no second allocation, that will be it.
“It will be a busy weekend for the stadium but we are committed to hosting this and if all goes well, which we expect it to, more events should follow.”
Admission will be £7.50 to include a programme / racecard and available on the King’s Lynn Speedway website kingslynn-speedway.com from midday today - food and drink will also be available and fans should note under current circumstances everyone must wear a face covering within the Adrian Flux Arena.
More than 30 races will be staged on a bumper occasion for fans to get their first taste of two-wheeled racing in 2020.
The news will come as a welcome boost to speedway fans who have been starved of action in 2020.
The 2020 season had been on hold since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis in March and there had been hopes of starting the campaign in August with social distanced crowds inside stadiums.
But following Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement regarding fans returning to sporting arenas in October, it was announced by British Speedway promoters that Professional speedway would not be raced in the UK this year at the end of last month.
