NEWS: Archie Wilkinson races in to sponsor Indoor finals

Coventry Cycle Speedway club, promotors of the British Indoor Finals, have today confirmed that leading Cycle Speedway equipment company, Archie Wilkinson, is the latest company to back the upcoming British Finals.

Following an approach by Joe McLaughlin to co-director Karl Wilkinson, the West Bromwich based company immediately pledged to support the staging costs of both the British under 19s individual final and the British Veterans final.

It brings to five, out of eight, of the British Indoor classification finals that have so far attracted sponsorship. The Coventry club hope to be in a position to announce more sponsorship for the finals, to be staged at the Sports Connexion on 2nd and 3rd January 2016, next week.
