Hammers confirm forthcoming dates

The Lakeside Hammers have confirmed their will be no racing at the Raceway this week as they wait for the rained off second leg of their KO Cup semi final to be staged, hopefully, tomorrow.

The Hammers line-up will be unchanged from that that made a fruitless trip to Manchester last week as Ryan Fisher again fills in for Jonas Davidsson who has a pre-arranged minor operation in Sweden.

Should the Hammers progress from the tie then their leg of the Final would be staged a week on friday on the 21st with a rain off date reserved for the next night Saturday 22nd.

One definite date for Hammers fans diary is Friday 28th October when the club will stage the End of season do at the Raceway tavern.

This years event will follow a slightly different formula with a fans forum kicking off the night at 7pm when Lee Richardson, Neil Vatcher and Jon Cook will be on hand to answer questions about the season. That will be followed by the most traditional eveing of presentations and rider speakers as well as light bites and music.

Ticket numbers are limited and are available for just £20 from the speedway office and online via the online store HERE. The Forum is open to ticket holders ONLY.
