Kvech joins up for the 2024 Ben Fund Bonanza - Full Line-up Revealed

KING’S Lynn newcomer and Grand Prix star Jan Kvech has been added to the line-up for the Ben Fund Bonanza at Workington on Sunday July 14.

Kvech has made a positive impression in UK speedway since joining the Stars, and organisers of the big fund-raiser are delighted to have secured his participation.

SRBF Chairman Paul Ackroyd said: “I went to Birmingham last week to check whether Freddie Lindgren was still available for the re-staging, but unfortunately he can’t do it.

“However, Jan Kvech quickly offered to take up the position! I’ve seen his early meetings in the UK at King’s Lynn and Birmingham and also last weekend’s Grand Prix where he did well.

“I’ve been impressed each time. He’s a lovely lad to talk to also.”

Meanwhile two further top-class performers have joined the field, namely Charles Wright and Adam Ellis, both former British Champions who have agreed to come in at short notice.

Ackroyd commented: “We are very happy with the field we have, including two flamboyant members of Team USA as well. I’m sure there will be plenty of eyes on them.”

A sad reminder of the importance of the Speedway Riders’ Benevolent Fund arrived on Monday night with the injuries sustained by Tate Zischke at Belle Vue.

The young Aussie has taken the UK by storm this year and had also agreed to ride in the Bonanza prior to his accident. Everyone associated with the SRBF sends him every good wish for a speedy recovery.


The full field is:

1. Justin Sedgmen (Edinburgh/Birmingham)

2. Dan Bewley (Belle Vue)

3. Craig Cook (Workington/Leicester)

4. Kyle Howarth (Scunthorpe/Sheffield)

5. Antti Vuolas (Workington)

6. Norick Blodorn (Belle Vue)

7. Charles Wright (Redcar/Oxford)

8. Paul Starke (Glasgow)

9. Gino Manzares (USA)

10. Simon Lambert (Scunthorpe)

11. Alex Martin (USA)

12. Adam Ellis (Ipswich)

13. Ben Barker (Plymouth)

14. Danny King (Redcar / Ipswich)

15. Lewis Kerr (Berwick)

16. Jan Kvech (King’s Lynn)

A reminder also that Dan Bewley’s 2023 GB Race Suit will be auctioned on the day after being re-donated by the previous winner.

There are sponsorships for several of the riders still available. Opportunities can be discussed with SRBF Secretary Stephanie Babb on 07901 976912 or email benfundbonanza@yahoo.com
