SPEEDWAY will celebrate the life of former stadium announcer Bryn Williams at a special event tonight (Thursday).
Smallbrook's Andrew Younie Stadium will host a special event between Wightlink Warriors and the Weymouth Wildcats — for free.
Lap record attempts and a demonstration by The Men in Black on vintage bikes will also feature.
Co-Promoter Barry Bishop said: “Bryn was a speedway legend, having held nearly ever post imaginable at one time or another. 
“I felt that we must pay tribute to him and recognise the huge amount of time he devoted to the sport, not only here on the Island, but at other tracks where he had an involvement. 
“It is an honour and privilege to be able to stage this event and in doing so I am especially delighted to be able to welcome Bryn’s daughter, Carys, and her husband, as our guests of honour. 
“Making this a free event will, I hope, draw many new faces to Smallbrook.”
Gates open at 5.30pm with the rider parade at 6.45pm, before the first race at 7pm.
