7.30pm Start Time to Meet Bomber

We are just hours away from when Chris ‘Bomber’ Harris lands at Eastbourne Speedway.

Harris, one of the most exciting riders in British racing, will lead the Somerset Rebels into action against the Fineprint Eagles in Championship Shield action.

Harris, along with Rory Schlein, forms one of the most powerful top twos in the section.

It is back to the normal start time for tomorrow’s (April 13) meeting – 7.30m.

Please arrive early to avoid queues as a large crowd is anticipated to see the Rebels on their first ever visit to Arlington, including the speedway legend that is Chris ‘Bomber’ Harris.

Please note: All turnstiles will close ten minutes after the start of Heat 1 – with no admittance after that time unless by prior arrangement.

Island joy

It was a great evening on the Isle of Wight last night for any Eastbourne fans.

The Warriors’ opening meeting, the Vince Mapley Memorial Trophy, was won by last year’s Eagle, Jason Edwards.

Georgie Wood, who led last year’s double winning team and has moved up a level with the Eagles this year, finished second after the race was awarded when fellow Eagle, Ben Morley fell while leading the final.

Both Wood and Morley also ride for the Isle of Wight in the lower division.
