THE Isle of Wight’s speedway team have been voted one of the best community clubs in the country.
The Wightling Warriors made the final of the World Speedway Riders’ Association (WRSA) awards event, held in Leicester on Saturday.
The Warriors were ranked alongside Premiership and Championship clubs Rye House, Somerset and Glasgow.
Co-promoter Barry Bishop, who re-launched the Island club with Martin Widman two-and-a-half years ago, said: “Being nominated for the award was somewhat surprising but hugely satisfying.
“We will use this success as a driver to further embed the Warrior way on the Island and beyond.
“From the start of our tenure, Martin and I have worked very hard to encourage and integrate the Island community into what we do.
“We have had great feedback offering all age groups affordable and fun-filled events at the Andrew Younie Smallbrook Stadium.
“Not only do we present exciting racing and an evening for all the family, we take every opportunity to promote the Isle of Wight as a welcoming and vibrant destination and I am sure this has played a part in our presence here.
“Our fabulous all-year round speedway training school, My First Skid, has been unbelievably popular, as budding riders of all ages and standards come to the Island from far and wide to take part.
“This was a very special day for our club.”
