Elite League Riders Championship moved back
2:50pm Sunday 15th September 2013 in Latest Sport News
THE date for the Elite League Riders Championship at Blunsdon has been changed and will now take place on Saturday October 19 at 5.00pm.
The event was originally scheduled for the Abbey Stadium on Saturday October 12, but has been moved back a week to ease possible fixture congestion at the Wiltshire track.
Speedway GB Events co-ordinator David Hoggart said: “The Speedway GB Event schedule is put together during the close season at a time when the qualifiers for the Elite League play-offs are unknown.
“Whilst there are still meetings to run that could influence the play-off fixtures a picture is emerging that could see Swindon fans facing a number of meetings in a short period of time, including the Elite League Riders Championship.
“The Swindon Promotion and Stadia UK who operate Greyhound racing on a Saturday have been wholly co-operative to allow this change to happen. I wish to publicly and sincerely thank them, it's not easy to rearrange a Greyhound meeting at such short notice.”
