Successful cycle speedway club to continue at Bretford Playing Fields

Steve Carpenter 1st Oct, 2016 Updated: 27th Oct, 2016

THE HIGHLY successful Dirt Bike Club at Bretford Playing Fields has once again been extended due to popular public demand.

The club has been one of this summer’s real success stories for local sport in Rugby and will now run every Saturday (10-11.30am) until the end of October.

It means one of the biggest attractions for teenagers and youngsters in the area will continue to race every Saturday for another month – with events now finishing on October 29.

The news of the extension to the Dirt Bike Club emerged at a Public Meeting, held in Brinklow last Tuesday, to discuss the overwhelming success of the revival of the sport in East Warwickshire.

Parents, riders and officials of the Dirt Bike Club, together with members of the Coventry Cycle Speedway club, gathered to hear glowing reports of the club and to take soundings on the future of events at the revived Brandon Bees track.

The meeting appointed a ‘Steering Group’ to run all activities at the refurbished Brandon Bees track, under the umbrella of the Coventry club and further race meetings this season are also planned.

Newcomers (aged 8-18), can just turn-up, learn bike handling skills, race tactics and to have a chance to progress to race for the Brandon Bees team.

Bikes are available to all new riders and the sessions are just £1, including bike hire. Newcomers should attend with helmet, gloves and arms and legs fully covered. A top British Cycling coach will supervise all the sessions.

The club will continue this Saturday despite the Brandon Bees junior team travelling to East Park Wolves on the same morning for a return junior challenge match.

For more information on the Brandon Bees Cycle Speedway club and the Dirt Bike Club ring 07400 993999.
