Treasure Hunt On The South Coast.

Reading Racers head into their last 3 days of racing for 2019 on Thursday night when they travel to Poole to meet the Weymouth Wildcats in search of precious league points.


It's a big stage for the Racers as each of their riders will be hoping this is just the first of many appearances at one of the most famous tracks in British Speedway.


Skipper Nick Laurence will once again line up at No.1 in front of the Pirates fans with William O'keefe playing the role of first mate as he has for most of the season.

The big 2 are joined by young Gunners Rhys Laker and Eli Meadows, both of whom will be relishing the big stage as they seek to impress one last time before the close season sets in.

Weymouth, suffering from rider unavailability, as the Racers have all season, blood 2 new riders in Darren Carr and Jamie Evans, both making their first appearance in league racing. No doubt the Wildcats managers Martin Peters and James Tresadern will be hoping they have discovered a new jewel for their crown as they look toward next season.


The Racers will be looking for another win after some good results recently from the same 4 riders to help them climb the league as they approach their final match of the season against Carmarthen on Saturday night.


Thursday's teams:

Weymouth Wildcats; 1. James Laker, 2. Sam Peters, 3. Darren Carr, 4. Jamie Evans.


Reading Racers; 1. Nick Laurence (c), 2. Rhys Laker, 3. William O'keefe, 4. Eli Meadows.
