WOLVERHAMPTON complete their preparations for the new speedway season over the next few days.

The club host their press day for members of the media at the base of their main team sponsors Parrys International in Cheslyn Hay on Monday from midday.

Supporters will also now have the opportunity to watch the riders’ first laps of Monmore this year in the evening (6.30), with a set £2 admission supporting the NHS.

Management duo Peter Adams and Chris Van Straaten will then meet supporters for the popular Pre-Season Talk-In at the Cleveland Arms Sports Pub on Tuesday, March 22 from 7.30.

Said Van Straaten: “It’s always exciting for the boys to get out on the Monmore track for the first time and we’re looking forward to Monday night.

“It may only be a team practice but fans love to come along and get their first taste of the smell of the bikes and, of course, the sound of them blasting around the track.

“And both Pete and myself are looking forward to talking to supporters at the talk-in on Tuesday, always a popular event.”

Meanwhile Aussie ace Ryan Douglas started the season in perfect style by winning Josh Auty’s testimonial at Scunthorpe on Saturday.

He got the better of former British Champion Danny King in the final with home favourite Tero Aarnio third and Charles Wright fourth.

Opening race night at Monmore is Monday March 28 against Birmingham to celebrate the Brummies continuing into 2022 after their future was in doubt. Chris Harris and Ben Barker are both lined up for Birmingham.
