Mildenhall speedway have announced a big weekend in early March as preparations build up ahead of the start of the 2018 season.

The weekend starts on Friday 9th March with the ‘KJM/Manchetts’ Fen Tigers on parade for their annual Press & Practise day. The day will commence at 10am for the Press, Radio/TV and Club Sponsors and will run through to midday. Riders will then take to the track at midday for the first of two sessions, the first ending at 1.30pm at which time there will be a thirty minute interval when supporters will be allowed into the pit area to take photographs or the riders. The second session will commence at 2pm sharp until close. The Fish and Chip shop will be open during the event.

The club will then run two practise days on Saturday 10th March and Sunday 11th March. Each training day will run from 10am through to 4pm. The cost for riders to attend is £40.00 per day which includes insurance. There will be an organised structure to these days with riders being grouped together based on ability and to allow the maximum benefit for those taking part. Supporters will be allowed to watch if they wish and like Press and Practise supporter access to the stadium is only via the main entrance gates in the front car park.

The club will now be holding their Meet the Riders event on SATURDAY 10th MARCH at 7PM and not as previously announced on the Sunday afternoon. With a practise day taking place on the Sunday and the club conscious that it is Mothering Sunday it was felt it was best all round to move the Meet the Riders to the Saturday. There will be a £5 entrance charge for the Meet the Riders evening which includes a buffet and you will also receive a ticket for a prize draw. Six of the ‘KJM/Manchetts’ Fen Tigers will be present (Matt Marson will not have arrived) plus the management team in what is always a lively evening.

The club will also be announcing the teams for the opening meeting, the ‘Fen Fours’, at the evening.
