The Wightlink Warriors Track Racing Club are planning an off-season festive treat for track racing enthusiasts, with plans now coming together for a multi-disciplined race meeting at Ryde's Smallbrook Stadium.

The event, a pre-Christmas 'Winter Warmer' training meeting, will feature youth and development speedway, grasstrack GT140 racing and flat track, on Saturday, December 16.

Wightlink Warriors co-owner, Barry Bishop, explained: "I know many of our supporters were disappointed our 2023 summer season was somewhat shorter than originally planned, so it was suggested it would be a nice way to end the calendar year if we could offer something on-track, that was both interesting and novel.

"That idea triggered a few phone calls to our friends in the track racing community and, with plenty of positive feedback, we intend to run a pre-Christmas 'Winter Warmer' training meeting.

"It will be the perfect preparation for the 2024 season.

"We plan to start around 11am and run through a mixed programme until 4pm."

"This may be a training race meeting, but it's sure to bring out the best in riders seeking to gain a little bit extra for 2024," added Barry.

Entry will be £5 for adults. Under 16s get in free.
