The likes of Jack Bell and Tim Grieg have competed in the series in recent years and with the Dirt Track Riders Association and their Flat Track Nationals growing in terms of profile and numbers a UK round is fantastic news for the sport in this country.

Belle Vue CEO Mark Lemon said on their clubs website  “We’ve had the pleasure of seeing Flat Track riders in action at the National Speedway Stadium, but we’ve never welcomed the Flat Track World Championship to Manchester before.

“So to host a round for the very first time, with 32 of the world’s best racing around Belle Vue, is fantastic news for not only Manchester but the whole of the UK motorsport fans.

“It’s such an exciting form of motorsport, very similar to action we love to watch here at Belle Vue every week, and I‘m certain any fan of Speedway will find this event most entertaining.

“We are privileged to have been given such a prestigious event by the FIM and we are very much looking forward to bringing world-class Flat Track to the City of Manchester.
