NEWS: Sponsor for Northern League Individuals

On Sunday 13th July, Northumbria Vikings Cycle Speedway Club are honoured to be staging the Northern Individual Championships on behalf of the Northern League. The club is currently in “busy mode” as it tries to ensure everything runs smoothly on the day for the competitors and public alike.

Age categories are Under 10, Under 13, Under 16, Under 19, Women, Senior and Veteran so it will certainly be the busiest day the new club has experienced so far and is expected to last from 11:30am to around 6:00pm. Most of the league’s top riders will be in action at the Cramlington Coliseum track for this one and professional video recordings have been organised for part of the event.

The club plans to have temporary covered pits accommodation erected in case of wet weather but the public would be advised to carry umbrellas! The usual on-site catering and refreshments will again be available from the Sporting Club café, but the Vikings are also supplying their regular free buffet service to riders. Negotiations are also underway to provide a barbecue from around lunchtime which should please the earlier arrivals.

All of this extra activity and provision has been made possible by our meeting sponsor, Darrian Properties of Newcastle without whose backing much of it would have been impossible, so the Northumbria club is hugely indebted to Mr Darryl Illingworth for his generosity. Darryl is also part of the Newcastle Speedway promotional team which allowed NCSC to put on a display stand at Brough Park on 29th June.
