Workington to host 2024 Ben Fund Bonanza

Workington Speedway has announced that they 2024 Ben Fund Bonanza is heading to the Northside Arena on March 16th.

The Ben Fund meeting is an annual fundraiser which was held at Kings Lynn in 2023, Redcar and Ipswich rider Danny King was the winner on the day. However, the main aim is to raise as much money as possible for a charity which is a necessity for speedway riders in the UK.

Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund Chairman, Paul Ackroyd anticipates another massive meeting at Northside in the spring:

“Without the generosity of the public, the Benevolent Fund would not be able to do the work that we do and we are very grateful for their ongoing support.

“This year has been tough for everyone, particularly as we are in the grips of a cost-of-living crisis which has made every donation all the more important and gratefully received.

“We are thrilled to be heading to Workington for the Ben Fund Bonanza next year. It is a fabulous track and I’m certain anyone who hasn’t been before will be tempted to make the journey.

“We have already got a handful of riders in mind, and almost every year we have to turn people away because we just don’t have the room for the number of guys who want to ride.

“It’s very rewarding for us to see how much value the riders, as well as the public, place on us and a lot of them who appear in the Bonanza have experienced first-hand the aid we provide.

“We hope to bring further details of the meeting in the New Year.”
