Defending champion Jordan Palin is a confirmed starter for the 500cc section of the British Youth Championship opener at Scunthorpe next Sunday.
Palin, who would have lined up for the Scorpions in the second tier this season, will be joined by Dan and Joe Thompson, who had team places with Leicester, as well as four other riders who would have been racing in the National League.
Promoter Rob Godfrey said: “It’s a top line-up, especially in the 500cc class where seven out of 11 of the riders were due to ride in the National League this season, and three of those were also set to ride in the Championship.
“Much of the local interest will focus on Jordan, who is the defending champion in the 500cc class, and of course he was going to be part of the Scorpions this season before coronavirus put paid to our league season.
“Another very talented local lad, Luke Harrison, also lines up in the 250cc class, and he’s also very keen for success.”
The meeting is set to feature 33 riders and 37 races in total. A limited number of tickets are available on a first-come first-served basis from scunthorpe-spedway.com, and full Covid-19 protocols will be in place on the day.
