British Team Championship Finals Come To Gin Pit

Astley & Tyldesley Cycle Speedway Club are gearing up for their biggest event of the season Sunday 11th Sept. The Gin Pit raceway will host the British Team Championship Finals, featuring four of the top teams in the country, who will battle it out to win the magnificent British Team Cup, a huge cup that has been contested annually since 1950.

This is the fourth time that A & T have hosted these prestigious championships - cycle speedway's equivalent of the F.A. Cup Final. Racing promises to be fast and furious around the small oval shale circuit, with no holds barred. Cycle speedway is like no other cycle sport, with physical contact an integral part of the sport. Racing starts at 11.00 am, with the first semi-final between East Newport and Leicester. This is followed by the second semi-final, at 12.45 pm, between Wednesfield (Wolverhampton) and Poole. The winners of each semi-final will meet in the final, starting at 3 pm.

Don't miss the action, which takes place at the Astley & Tyldesley Miners' Welfare Club, Meanley Road, Gin Pit, Tyldesley, M29 7DW. Admission is free, with spectator seating, hot refreshments and a licensed bar all available. The meeting is being sponsored by J. Fisher & Sons, Heavy Haulage, of Atherton.
