New Bosses at Stadium

Martin Dugard and Jon Cook have teamed up to take over the lease to run Arlington Stadium.

The duo, who have a long relationship, organised the popular Brighton Bonanza which attracted big crowds for indoor speedway over a number of years.

Cook, is a former promoter at Arlington, and has returned to lead the Eastbourne Speedway’s return to professional speedway as part of the Championship league.

Dugard stepped down from running speedway art the end of last season after guiding, with his son Connor, to seven trophies in the National League in a four-year period after they took over when the speedway was threatened with closure.
