SWINDON co-promoter Lee Kilby says the focus of everyone at the club is on 2021.

Kilby has confirmed there will be no racing at the Abbey in the remaining weeks of what would have been the season.

“We’ve got our heads round the fact that we won’t be running this year,” he said. “We have made the call that we won’t be looking to stage any one-off individual meeting or any challenge matches.

“There’s so much involved to get meetings up and running and in addition the stadium aren’t fully staffed right now as they are running greyhound racing behind closed doors.

“It’s a big ask to bring staff back in just for a meeting or two, so it’s the logical decision to make.

“We’re already thinking about 2021 and how we are going to work the season as well as watching the guys we have out in Poland.

“It must be frustrating for Troy Batchelor not to get the track time he deserves out there, we know what a good rider he is.

“We’ll continue to keep our fans in touch with any developments but it’s a fairly quiet time for us all right now.

“We’ve got Adam Ellis in the Grand Prix Challenge later this month and we’re sure to have Jason Doyle in the Speedway of Nations at Belle Vue at the end of October, plus of course the Grand Prix series starts in three weeks.

“I’m sure all Swindon fans will be watching with great interest.”
