British speedway clubs set date to get season off the line
British speedway clubs have agreed to start the new season in early May.
A statement on the British Speedway website said: "Fixtures will be published next week for both the Premiership and Championship.
"Plans are in place for a new concept in both leagues with more details to follow. The plans have been made to adapt to the current situation regarding Polish restrictions on the number of leagues riders can race in, plus the ongoing challenges presented by the pandemic.
"There is a clear pathway for the development of British speedway and young British riders, not just in 2021 but in the years ahead.
"In addition, whilst there is disappointing news about losing Swindon and Somerset for 2021, these decisions have been made by these clubs to protect their futures from 2022 onwards. They will be welcomed back into the sport next year.
"Another club has expressed an interest in joining the Championship and this will be explored in due course.”
