Glasgow Tigers trio sign up for Ben Fund Bonanza!

GLASGOW trio Paul Starke, Leon Flint and Steve Worrall have all signed up for the Ben Fund Bonanza at Workington on March 16.

All three riders have joined the Tigers over the winter for their Cab Direct Championship title defence, Starke for his second spell with the club, and he will be racing in the Bonanza for a fifth time in succession.

He said: “The Ben Fund does a great job for the injured riders so if there’s a chance I can help then I am happy to do it.

“They have helped me in the past, I had a big one at Belle Vue in 2019 when I broke both my wrists and they were a big help at that time. So I always want to do my bit for them.

“Glasgow won the league last year so I am happy to go back there. I was smashing it with them in 2019 when I had that crash, so I’m pleased to be going back to repay them.”

As well as the usual individual event the meeting will feature both Youth races, and Women’s heats, the latter being part of the ongoing Women in Speedway initiative.

Some of the best of British will be featuring in both classes. Pippa Laverty, co-organizer of the British leg of the FIM ATPI Women’s Speedway Academy, will be attending the Bonanza in her official capacity.

Riders announced to date for the Bonanza: Ben Barker, Freddie Lindgren, Dan Bewley, Tom Brennan, Danny King, Erik Riss, Sam Masters, Simon Lambert, Justin Sedgmen, Steve Worrall, Leon Flint, Paul Starke.
