PELICANS CROSS THE DIVIDE

DLSA make GP gamble

Timperley will join an elite group of clubs to have hosted a Grand Prix meeting after being named as hosts of the SL30 British round by the DLSA. A surprise decision to say the least by the sports governing body with the Pelicans’ Park Road Stadium having a capacity of just 13,600 at present, nearly 18,000 were at Coventry for the SL29 event. With no Stafford and a reluctance to return to York after a pricing disaster in SL28 saw the attendance of the meeting plummet the DLSA’s options were limited, and they hope the awarding of the event to Timperley will encourage not only their promoter Garry Robinson to increase the capacity at the venue further, but others also at the own circuits in the knowledge that spending on infrastructure will be rewarded in future. York—whose Jorvic Park with a capacity of 18,225 is the current biggest in the country—will host the GP Play Off in SL30, Beverley get the Overseas Final, with Coventry staging the British Final. Other big winners in this weeks allocations include Tibthorpe (WU21 Final), St Ives (WU19 Final) and Monkston (Division One Riders Championship). The first piece of club silverware will be awarded at St Barts, who host the Pairs final in the second month of the new campaign. On the track there was a first major final success for East Kent youngster Kyle Gill, the 18 year old taking the BU19 title at St Barts after scoring a 15 point maximum, he and runner-up in the meeting Joe Read (13) of Sawley will go on to represent the home nations in the WU19 final later in the season. Boston meanwhile completed the only 100% record in pre-season team racing with a 42-48 victory at newcomers Sawley.
