Fans to meet Isle of Wight speedway stars

A SPECIAL event will be held for speedway fans on the Isle of Wight to get a first look at the Wightlink Warriors 2017 squad.

The club will host a press and practice event at the Andrew Younie Smallbrook Stadium on April 8, giving fans the chance to meet the riders and watch them gear up for the new season.

The first competitive action will start on April 13, when the Warriors compete in the Vince Mapley Memorial meeting.

Wightlink Warriors Commercial Director Barry Bishop said: "We have announced this date early so people can get it into their diaries and on their Warriors calendars now.

"Last season’s press day was amazing and it was from this point the Warrior Way buzz started at Smallbrook, so we want to start off the same way in 2017 too."

A pre-season party will also be held, as part of the press and practice event.
