It’s seconds out for another Play Off slug fest at the Arena Essex Raceway this Friday, 5th September, as the Vortex Hammers go head to head with the Poole Pirates for the second time in a week.
The Vortex Hammers faint hopes of qualifying depend on a minimum seven point win, which will gain the maximum three League points, and they’ll be determined to carry on from their win on Monday in a meeting curtailed at the riders request due to track conditions.
The Hammers Co Promoter Jon Cook commented: “This is likely to be the last home action of the season. The weather is set fair and we’re looking for the team to show our fans just what it means to be a Vortex Hammer”.
The riders will be going amongst the crowd before the start of the meeting to collect for the Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund.
The teams for Friday are:-
Vortex Lakeside Hammers: Davey Watt, Aaron Summers, Richard Lawson, Lewis Bridger, Danny King, Ben Morley and Adam Ellis.
Coastal Aluminium Poole Pirates: Peter Kildermand, Cameron Woodward, Vaclav Milik, Josh Grajczonek, Maciej Janowski, Benji Compton and Kyle Newman.
