National League Riders’ FinalThursday, September 15th, 2016 | Fixtures, News
The Beaumont Park Stadium is all set to break new ground with its first staging of the National League Riders’ Championship on Saturday. Sixteen of the top riders, which includes last season’s champion Ben Morley, will be racing for the coveted trophy.
The line-up is a mixture of riders with Elite League experience and ‘Young Guns’ out to spoil reputations. All twelve National League clubs are represented with Belle Vue, Kent, Cradley and Rye House having two riders in action. There is the added interest for Lions fans as three of the competitors, Tom Perry, Robert Branford and Max Clegg are all former Leicester riders.
Clegg approaches the final in confident mood following a career best performance on Wednesday at Birmingham where the teenager won the British Under-19 Championship.
The meeting starts at the usual time of 7.30 pm and admission prices are as follows:
Children (between 12-18) £8
Under 12’s free
Please note that this meeting does not form part of the Leicester Speedway season ticket offer
