Speedway of Nations Moves from Manchester

Speedway of Nations Moves from Manchester

Belle Vue’s planned staging of the FIM Speedway of Nations Final next month has been called off.

Organisers BSI Speedway have confirmed the event is to be moved to a venue in mainland Europe due to increased Covid-19 restrictions in the UK – with a return to Manchester planned for 2021.

Club CEO Adrian Smith said: “While the club is naturally disappointed, we fully understand BSI Speedway’s decision and the continued safety and wellbeing of everyone involved in the event the main priority.

“This pandemic has caused unimaginable headaches for British Speedway, as it has other sports and businesses across the world.

“We have worked incredibly hard to get to a point where we can stage Speedway racing in Manchester in 2020.

“But the continuing Government announcements coupled with ongoing restrictions across Britain, particularly in relation to international sport, means it would be impractical for Manchester to host the Final.

“We are however, delighted that BSI Speedway want to return to the National Speedway Stadium for the 2021 Final and we look forward to working with them to make next year’s event one to remember.”
