** Fund Raising - 2015 Team Suits **
Press & Practise Date Change
The continued inclement winter weather has left no option but to cancel the Press and Practise day at Mildenhall Speedway planned for Monday 2nd March. With the track continuing to be worked on but unfit to race on at the moment and the unavailability of some riders promoter Kevin Jolly has moved the date back to Monday 23rd March with the press call at 10.30am followed by a practice session starting around 1pm.
This is not what was wanted but Jolly felt this was the best option available - he said: “I don’t like having to mess people around and I do apologise to the press folk, who give us excellent coverage at all times, but we really were left with no option but to move the date back and hope for some better weather. I hope everyone understands our position here! We have had an incredibly positive winter and won’t let this small blip put us back.
We held a very enjoyable fund raising event on Saturday, where supporters saw the new team race suits for the first time, and everyone really enjoyed themselves. We have a fantastic group of supporters who keep on giving and myself and the lads really want to give something back to our supporters once we get on track.
The preparations for the Palmer Trophy (40th Anniversary meeting) are moving forward well and I was happy to be able to announce the first three riders on Saturday, all ex-Fen Tigers Stefan Nielsen, Brendan Johnson and Aaron Baseby. On top of that the first names on a very long and growing guest list were announced, Bob Coles, Fred Mills and John Gibbons from when I was a Fen Tiger, plus two from the early 80’s Carl Baldwin and Andy Warne. We are close to being able to announce some fantastic news on the guest front hopefully early next week. We just need to pray for a dry day and it will certainly be a day to remember for Mildenhall supporters”
