CLUB NEWS: Brandon ready for the off

Coventry`s second Cycle Speedway outfit, the Brandon Bees, who race at Bretford Playing Fields, are also set to race into the new season after a major close season upgrade at the picturesque Warwickshire village venue.

The Bees will race Leicester juniors in a Midland League Junior Challenge on Tuesday evening, 5th April, at 7.15pm at the Brandon Road location. The Bees will again field mainly Coventry contracted juniors as they attempt to attract their own junior riders.

Spurred-on by former 1960s Whoberley Witches rider Rob Hardie, and his partner Brenda, the whole Brandon track has enjoyed a complete close season make-over and the facility has now been totally restored.

The Brandon Bees are inviting local parents and youngsters from the many villages around the track, such as Wolston, Brinklow and Ryton, to get involved in the revived club and use the newly restored Brandon track as an excellent new community sporting resource for local people.
