Meeting called off

The Hammers will have to wait a further week to finish their Elite League season after Friday’s meeting against the Birmingham Brummies was called off after a freak thunder shower at 6.45pm washed away a full day’s preparation during which time the track staff had completely relaid the Raceway track after a night and early morning of rain.

Jon Cook stated: “We will race again next Friday and I wish to thank Birmingham for their help in re-arranging it so soon. We were all set for racing after a busy day and it’s a great shame theonly time the weather forecast was wrong was so late in the day. However, we will always go the extra mile to get meetings on and I wish to thank my track staff for a huge effort to get the track in a condition that had won the praise of both teams before the shower struck.

It will be restaged next Friday 2nd September at 8pm.
