Plymouth Speedway throw open their doors to allow potential new fans to experience watching speedway on Friday night with a FREE ENTRY night.
This will allow those who have not been before, or stopped going for whatever reason to join the loyal Devils fans on the terraces at the St Boniface Arena. The meeting features mainly junior riders including Devils reserves 16 year old Henry Atkins and Rob Parker along with No. 8 Saul Bulley.
The format of the meeting sees the Plymouth BUDE BREWERY Demons take on Devon rivals Exeter Falcons in their inaugural Southern Development League match before the Falcons then meet the Weymouth Wildcats with both clashes over 6 heats with 4 man teams.
In between there will be 125cc demonstration races featuring 8 and 9 year old’s Zak Davey, Sam Peters and Leo Rixon along with some old time bikes with the Men In Black Blast From The Past races. They will have their machines on display prior to the meeting for fans to look at.
So it is literally from the past to the future in what should be an interesting night of racing.
Co-Promoter Laurence Rogers is really looking forward to the meeting, “The Development Leagues have been a great starting point for many riders who have progressed on to higher leagues and this new league will hopefully produce some new names in the same way the Midland and Northern League have.”
“Our first meeting for the new Plymouth Demons was chosen by us to be a free entry one so we give the locals the chance to see what speedway is all about. Hopefully they will like what they see and then come along the following weeks to watch the full side, the Devils . We have no idea what sort of crowd we will get …there may be hardly anyone there, although we hope not!, or the place will be packed with lots of newcomers ….which is what we hope for !!”
“Every adult will be given a raffle ticket on entry to the Arena and we will draw out one ticket and present a free family ticket for a main Devils meeting. We naturally have expenses to cover and will hold a bucket collection towards these which we hope people will contribute to. “
