British Team Championship Finals Come To Gin Pit
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.
