British Team Championships Live!

British Team Championships Live!


Location: Astley & Tyldesley Miners Welfare Club, Manchester
Event: 4 September 2011

Astley and Tyldesley Cycle Speedway Club are gearing up for their biggest event of the season this forthcoming Sunday (11 September).

Action from last year's British Individual Final at Gin Pit, with Horspath's Mark Boaler (left) leading Mark Griffiths, Adam Peck and Terry Norman on his way to winning the British title.

The Gin Pit raceway will host the British Team Championship Finals, featuring four of the top teams in the country, who will battle it out to win the magnificent British Team Cup, a huge cup that has been contested annually since 1950.

This is the fourth time that A and T have hosted these prestigious championships - cycle speedway's equivalent of the F.A Cup Final. Racing promises to be fast and furious around the 75 metre long circuit, with no holds barred. Racing starts at 11am, with the first semi-final between East Newport and Leicester. This is followed by the second semi-final, at 12.45pm, between Wednesfield (Wolverhampton) and Poole. The winners of each semi-final will meet in the final, starting at 3pm.

Don't miss the action, which takes place at the Astley & Tyldesley Miners' Welfare Club, Meanley Road, Gin Pit, Tyldesley, M29 7DW. Admission is free, with spectator seating, hot refreshments, a licensed bar and car parking all available. The meeting is being sponsored by J. Fisher & Sons, Heavy Haulage, of Atherton.
