WOLVERHAMPTON Speedway have launched a special ‘Heroes and Legends’ calendar for 2021.

With no action to focus on this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, club bosses decided to opt for a calendar full of some of the biggest fans’ favourites from seasons gone by.

Promoter Chris Van Straaten said: “I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed sitting down and going back through our teams and riders from past years.

“It’s probably the most enjoyable time I’ve had in what has been such a depressing year for everyone.

“I’ve gone with riders from my own era who I feel have made a big contribution to Wolverhampton Speedway both on and off track – and I hope the supporters agree with my choices!”

The calendar is now available to pre-order ahead of its scheduled release in November via the following link:

Meanwhile, the club’s loyal, existing season ticket holders will be able to claim one free of charge, with details of how they will be able to do so to be confirmed in the next couple of weeks.

Said Van Straaten: “98 per cent of our season ticket holders have stuck by us and we can’t thank them enough for that.

“We still have monthly outgoings and expenditure and their generosity and loyalty has been a massive help as well as a big boost.

“It’s only right we give them a small something back in return and we’d also like to thank the sponsors who have covered the cost of the printing.”
