BREXIT MAY INFLUENCE SPEEDWAY

Brexit logo

* The recent exit by the UK from the European Union may mean big changes to speedway rider eligibility going forward and there are already murmurings along these lines in the UK.
Whilst it’s too early to determine what it will mean for riders within the Commonwealth, riders from European countries may find themselves subjected to far more stringent visa criteria.
This would have a major influence on the make up of teams and could in fact make riding in the UK leagues almost untenable for some nationalities. Watch this space for updates in future months.

* Sensational effort from Rohan Tungate and Josh Grajczonek to win the Premier League Pairs on the eve of the British Grand Prix. The PL Pairs is one of the most competitive events of the season and because it is run on GP weekend it always draws a great crowd. Well done fellas!

* Everyone at Heffernan Motorsports would like to wish Hunter Valley Sidecar veteran Mick Farrell a speedy recovery following a bad turn he had at Kurri Speedway on the weekend. Great work from all involved to get Mick to hospital and hopefully we will get some positive news soon. Mick is a real character and has been a stalwart of the sport for many years both as a competitor and sponsor. He’s always quick to get behind meetings via his Farrell Transport business and has been a keen sponsor of Tony Primmer and the Slade Boys from Tamworth over the years.

* In recent weeks we have been touching base with some of the Aussie riders and giving mid season updates on their progress in 2016 (Via our Facebook page). So far we have put together pieces on Jake Allen and Mason Campton in keeping with our policy of supporting Aussies who ride overseas but also support our own major events during the summer. These guys are the heart and soul of the sport in the country.
