SHEFFIELD have thrown their hat into the ring for the selection of major events next season.

The British Speedway Promoters’ Association have drawn up a list of provisional dates and venues for the likes of the British Final and Elite League Riders’ Championship. And Owlerton is in the frame for the Premier League Riders’ Championship as Tigers have staged the competition for several seasons.

Co-promoter David Hoggart said: “There is a provisional list but we can’t make it public until it’s confirmed by the BSPA. We are interested because we have one of the best stadia in the sport; Owlerton should be hosting major meetings. I don’t get involved in the selection process.

“But it goes without saying that we’d like to stage the event again because we always pull in a good crowd which makes the event financially successful.
