A FIFTH challenge meeting has been arranged for the homeless Coventry Bees speedway team against SGB Premiership newcomers Rye House.
Taking place on Saturday, May 6, at 7pm – previously a scheduled date for a league encounter between the clubs – the meeting will see some of Coventry’s recent riders take on their former team.
Chris Harris, Scott Nicholls, Edward Kennett and Stuart Robson will all line-up in Rye House kevlars while the Bees are expected to announce six of their initial seven riders.
Coventry-based racer Rory Schlein will replace Kenneth Bjerre – who signed a contract with Belle Vue Aces last week.
The club has thanked Steve Jenson and all at Rye House for their help and co-operation in arranging this fixture.
Our campaign calls on the Coventry Bees, Brandon Estates, Rugby Borough Council and all relevant institutions to support:
1. Getting the world-famous Coventry Bees back on track for the 2018 SGB Premiership season.
2. Ensuring a long-term plan is developed so the Bees can look forward to a bright future away from their Brandon home once a potential lease ends.
