BUMPER BANK HOLIDAY AT THE ABBEY

Sunday August 25, 2019
SWINDON Speedway bosses are urging fans of all ages to turn out and enjoy their Bank Holiday clash with Ipswich at the Abbey (7.30).

The club have arranged some extra attractions to celebrate their 70th anniversary on an important night in the Premiership.

With six of the seven clubs in action throughout the day, CFS Filtration Robins boss Alun Rossiter knows a win against high flying Ipswich would be a major step towards booking their play-off place.

And he said: “It’s a big night for all sorts of reasons and we want to see the place packed.

“The meeting itself is one we have to win to keep thing moving along. The boys are feeling pretty good right now and we’re looking forward to facing a strong Ipswich team.

“They’ve been a great addition to the top level of the sport in this country and although we won at their place earlier this month we won’t be taking anything for granted.

“We have to treat them with respect because they have riders who can come here and put on a show.”

Swindon are at full strength but Ipswich use the rider replacement facility for Cameron Heeps who has a rib injury.

Extra attractions include face painting and 'Where's Wosco' picture hunt, sweets giveaway for the kids, an old bike demonstration, former riders parade and autograph session and a memorabilia presentation.
Racing starts at 7.30.

The race jackets worn by the Robins riders will go to a blind action following the conclusion of the meeting. To be in with a chance of winning a jacket, you can send a message to the club's official Facebook page - Official Swindon Speedway. With the jacket you would like to bid on, and amount you'd like to bid. Alternatively you can email co-promoter Lee Kilby at: leekilby@swindon-speedway.com or send Lee a text to: 07552414047.
