The Tru Plant Stars Speedway event volunteers achieve 500 years of combined service and welcome 3 new volunteers.

With the first home event at the Adrian Flux Arena taking place on 4th April, the Tru Plant Stars Speedway event volunteers this week braved the ‘mini beast from the East’ to attend an event planning meeting.

The Stars volunteers have now surpassed a very impressive combined total of 500 years’ service.

Clerk of the Course, Sean Britton, will once again be responsible for making sure that the events run smoothly and to time. Sean’s work this year started by ensuring that the volunteers completed their 2018 track licence application forms. Sean welcomed the three new volunteers to the Club and went on to discuss the regulations, roles, responsibilities and the new event format. The changes for this year were very well received by all.

Keith (Buster) Chapman, owner and promoter “So many sports rely on the support of their volunteers and Speedway is one of those sports. Our volunteers really are part of our Speedway family and I look forward to working with everyone again this year. I am certain that the Club will ensure that the three new volunteers enjoy their year too”.

Dale Allitt, Co-Promoter, “We as a team have huge respect for the volunteers and really appreciate the job that they do, as without them we simply couldn’t go racing. Having so many familiar faces each week really makes you feel at home from the minute you arrive at the main gate”.

Robin Brundle, Co-Promoter, “The fact that a relatively low number of volunteers have accrued a combined total of 500 years of service is phenomenal and is a real credit to their dedication and loyalty. Two of the volunteers have individually given 53 years of service which is very impressive. This is made even more so by their assertion that they have no intention of stopping any time soon! There is a wide range of roles for volunteers, so if anyone wishes to join us, please email your details to: “.
