With round one being rained off two weeks ago, this will be the first meeting to kick off the season, and an entry of over 35 riders is expected.
In the Cub class, Ollie Binns and Harry Fletcher will make their class debut against 2018 runner up
Billy Budd moves up to the Junior category and will no doubt put the challenge to former junior
champion Sam Hall. Long distance traveller Gino Casale will also apply the pressure to Hall and Budd. Newcomer Jake Breeze also gets his first fga meeting.
2018 champion Martin Adams leads the senior line up. The Shrewsbury man will have tough
opposition from fellow Minsterley club member and FGA chairman Glyn Stanton, whose early
season form on the gt140s has been impressive. Crewe’s Dave Binns will also be challenging for top
spot after getting plenty of practice in the winter alongside brother Andy. Wrekin club members,
Liam Ashcroft and brother Ryan will also be favourites to challenge for the win whilst Marcus
Crutchington will be looking for a strong start to the season.
Former speedway rider Paul Timms makes his FGA return alongside his son, Chris. FGA regulars Mark Furley, John Higham also make the trip to Shropshire.
First race is 1.30pm. Free Admission to spectators.
The venue is Tedstill house Farm, Middleton Scriven, Chetton WV16 6AH
