PETERBOROUGH SPEEDWAY OFFICIAL STATEMENT

Thursday October 05, 2017
THE future of Peterborough Speedway has been placed into serious jeopardy again.

Club owner Ged Rathbone has been fined a significant five-figure sum by the Speedway Control Bureau (SCB).

It concerns his decision to give Jack Holder permission to miss the SGB Championship Fours on August 6 - an event they won without him at the East of England Arena and was hailed a huge success by speedway bosses - and two subsequent Peterborough meetings to race in Poland.

Rathbone, whose British Speedway Promoters' Association (BSPA) remains suspended, attended a hearing earlier this week and was notified of the outcome today.

Peterborough will now carefully consider their position, but intend to honour all remaining racing commitments in 2017 for their fabulous supporters who have backed the club so well home and away.

No further comment will be made at this time.
