Location: Poole Cycle Speedway, Poole, Dorset
Event: 3 June 2012
Harbourside Park is the only place to be over the Diamond Jubilee weekend for all the very best in cycle speedway as Poole stages a two day race meeting with five mouth-watering events.
Opening the proceedings on Sunday 3 June at 1pm is the Ade Gale Laurels, sponsored by Read Fabrications. The junior line-up includes all the top British names including Jack Harrold, Ashley Hill and current British Champion Arron Morgan along with top Aussie star Shane Bentley.
No less than nine current or former British Champions will feature in the senior event at 3pm along with Polish riders Greg Gluchowski and Michel Nowak. It will be the first chance for locals to see 2011 British champion Andy Angell since he picked up his title and the Hull based star man is sure to start as one of the favourites.
Other former or current British champions joining Angell on track will be Lee Aris, Ben Mould, Gavin Wheeler, Tom Colling, Mark Boaler, Mark Carmichael, Paul Heard and Devon express Thomas Reed.
Day two kicks off on Monday 4 June at 1pm with two new Laurels events - under 14s and women’s events. The under 14's competition is sponsored by Dave Wynn Engineering and again all the top names will be in action. Newly crowned British U13 champion Will Tidball is joined in the U14's by George Horsley, Adam Bennett, Adam Watson and Jake Neighbour along with the best of the home based riders.
All the top girls will be in action in the Womens event including world champion Laura Watson from Leicester, British champion Livvy Horsley and Exeter's blond bombshell Lauren Hookway who will probably start as favorite after her brilliant recent performance at Harbourside to win the South West championship.
Also in action will be Kayleigh Clarke from the Findon club in South Australia who is making her first visit to the UK. Rounding off a busy weekend on Monday afternoon at 3pm will be the Kerry Foods sponsored International Club Best Pairs with a quality line-up to bring the Jubilee track fest to a spectacular conclusion.
