BRITISH SPEEDWAY NATIONAL LEAGUE UPDATE

Wednesday November 28, 2018
NATIONAL League clubs have met to establish the structure of the third tier next season.

And it’s confirmed eight clubs will come to the tapes - with the possibility of more joining before the fixtures are published.

It is hoped the conveyor belt of young British riders will continue with teams building to a 36 point limit to encourage new riders to take advantage of competitive racing.

IN SUMMARY:

NATIONAL LEAGUE 2019:
Belle Vue Colts
Cradley Heath
Isle of Wight
Kent
Leicester
Mildenhall
Plymouth
Stoke

Possibility of further applicants

Trophy competition
Isle of Wight
Kent
Mildenhall
Plymouth

Potential of other clubs to join competition

Fixtures will be compiled on January 9 and released at a similar time.
Cup draw will also be made at that time along with final decision on any added teams.

36 point limit for seven riders.
Two-points is now the minimum average for a rider to bring this in line with the Championship.

Buxton will not participate in league racing but have been given permission to run open meetings. It is hoped at least one NL shared event will go there. The National League members would like to acknowledge the hard work of the Moss family at Buxton down the years.
