Riverside to host British GP
Merseysidewill host the British Grand Prix for a third time, six years after they last staged the meeting. With a capacity of 24,300 the Riverside Arena is the third biggest purpose built venue in the country, coming in behind both Don Valley (50,000)—hosts of the European GP in SL23—and Southampton (47,500), who staged a round in the series last season. Southampton will host the British Final in SL23, which will suit their number one George Farley who is looking to become the first rider ever to retain the national title. Both Altrincham (3rd round) and Dunmow (2nd round) have been allocated meetings late on in the qualifying stage of this years World Championship. Other big winners when the MLSA made their decisions include Quantock (WU21 semi-final), Tottenham (WU19 semi-final) and Newquay (BU21 Final). The first piece of club silverware will be awarded at California, the third division side scheduled to run the Pairs Final at the start of the second month of the campaign. A campaign which gets underway with Don Valley as favourites to regain the league title they last won in SL21 back from holders Manor, with not many expecting the Miracles themselves to challenge this time around, the bookies having them fighting against relegation. It was though Ramsgate that finished pre-season as the only side unbeaten in the warm-up fixtures, they completing the preliminaries with a 38-52 victory at Birmingham. Success too for Rams youngster Joseph Sawyer (13), the 18 year old winning the BU19 title at Merseyside this week from James Preston (12) and Thomas Pugh (12).
