The Lakeside Hammers Speedway team have released the schedule for tonight’s meeting with Swindon, when all present will pay their respects to Lee Richardson.
Gates to the Arena will open to the public from 6:00pm as per usual. An area for fans to sign a Book of Remembrance and to leave floral tributes will be provided within the Raceway Tavern Parade of shops, at the northern end.
At 7:45, the riders, family, friends and fans of Lee will gather to remember and honour the Hammers captain with a minutes silence. The silence will be ended by the sound of a Speedway klaxon and a period of applause will follow.
Racing will not begin until 8:15pm and no Speedway bikes will be started until the end of the ceremony of Remembrance.
