CLUB NEWS: Hellingly plan 70th extravaganza

Celebrating 70 years of Cycle Speedway, Hellingly Lions are pleased to announce plans for a series of four Championship of Sussex meetings to be held over the weekend of 30th September-1st October 2017.

As riders prepare to travel to Australia for the world championships, meetings will be held in all the major categories, Junior, Seniors, Veterans and Women’s and it is hoped that entrants will be secured to make competitive fields across all the categories.

Prize money will be paid to all finalists with the winner receiving £100 and a special commemorative trophy.

The club will be actively looking for a local hotel to accommodate anyone who would like to stay in Sussex for the weekend. Plans are also being made to stage a celebration on the Saturday night.

Final plans will be made over the next 2-3 months and will be announced as soon as they are known. Invites will be sent to club secretaries at a later date. For more information email:
