ALL roads lead to Brandon for the prestigious Elite League Riders’ Championship on Saturday (7.30).

Brandon will play host to a huge night of action as the best riders in the top flight bring the curtain down on the Elite League campaign.

Grand Prix stars Chris Holder, Niels-Kristian Iversen, Chris Harris and Freddie Lindgren will all be in action in a star-studded field.

They are joined by a number of other big names including British World Cup heroes Robert Lambert, Danny King and Craig Cook plus seven-time British Champion Scott Nicholls.

BSPA Chairman Buster Chapman is anticipating an unmissable night of action in their final major event of the year.

Said Chapman: “It’s a very good line-up for what is still a very prestigious title, and I for one am very much looking forward to this meeting.

“We have reduced admission prices from last year’s levels as a way to say thank you to our fans for their loyal support of British speedway throughout the season.

“We have a good combination of top Grand Prix riders and some very popular club riders who I’m sure will put on a good show for the supporters.

“Obviously from my own point of view, with my King’s Lynn hat on, we have Niels-Kristian Iversen, winner of the Grand Prix in Torun at the weekend, and Robert Lambert, third in the World Under 21 Championship.

“I’m sure it will be a super night and as the final major event of the Elite League season I’d urge everyone to come along and support it.”

Admission has been priced at £20 for adults and £15 for concessions, whilst accompanying kids go FREE!

There will also be an autograph session from 6.30-7pm in the understand bar along with a bouncy castle and face painting.
