The Public Meeting to help revive the dormant Stoke Cycle Speedway track has been given a terrific boost with a late surge in Media interest.

Earlier today (Wednesday), ex Stoke officials Avon Allcock and Gene Bailey were both interviewed by BBC Radio Stoke at Etruria Park. The interviews took place with a imaginative BBC interviewer conducting the interview as she cycled around the track talking to Avon and Gene.

The story is to go out in the primetime breakfast morning slot tomorrow morning – perfect timing for the Public Meeting to be held tomorrow night (Thursday 21st May).

The revival story also featured in todays daily Stoke Sentinel newspaper.

And, to complete the media blitz, Avon Allcock was attending Stoke’s leading commercial radio station, Signal FM, this afternoon (Wednesday), to record another radio interview. This will also go out tomorrow morning.

Avon Allcock said: “This tremendous publicity has given us a sense of excitement ahead of the Public Meeting. It does seem that we are on the right track to revive racing in the Potteries”.

All the Media coverage has been arranged by Joe McLaughlin.
