No let up in Nottingham’s ascent

Successive promotions in their first two seasons in the sport have given Nottingham a prized spot in the top flight. However the job is no where near completed as far as Red Dogs promoter Mike Wright is concerned. He’s ripped apart his successful side in an attempt to put together a septet that will be able to challenge for major silverware immediately, a title bid the goal in SL33 for this highly ambitious side. The club record transfer fee was smashed twice as both Ashley Smith and Hayden Baker were brought in for £300,000 apiece, the latter brings the experience of having won the league title, KOC and European Cup with Coventry, the former is a rider that has averaged over ten points for Witham in each of the past two seasons and is now a regular England International. Smith—who finished ninth in last years Grand Prix Series— and Baker are joined in the Nottingham heat leader berths by Ivan Khalitov, who arrives for a more modest £130,000 fee from Buxton. The Russian won the British GP in SL30, the same year he helped Warley to a best ever finish of third in the British League. Although less substantial, there has been changes at heat leader elsewhere in division one, most notably at Fort William who have signed 42 year old Henrik Kojefors to be their talisman this season. The £125,000 switch ends a 17 year association with Beverley for the four-time World Championship winner, he spent last year out on loan at Sawley, where he earned a 10.12 GSA. Elsewhere York spent a club record £400,000 in bringing in 27 year old Vadim Chaban as their third heat leader, the Russian—signed from Blackpool—won the WU19 title back in SL24.
