LEICESTER will switch to Sunday afternoon racing for their home fixtures in the National Development League this season.

Fixtures for the third tier are currently in the process of being finalised, but the club can confirm the Lion Cubs have scheduled matches at the Pidcock Motorcycles Arena, Beaumont Park for Sundays at 3pm.

The move has been made in order to provide maximum rider availability both for the Cubs and their opponents bearing in mind Championship commitments.

Skipper Joe Thompson has a Championship team place with Plymouth, who will be racing at home predominantly on Saturday evenings, and Max James is racing for Edinburgh who have various Saturday away matches.

Another key reason for the switch is that it opens up greater opportunities to make use of the new mini-track for second half events featuring 250cc and 125cc riders, which would otherwise be constrained by time on a Saturday evening.

Leicester’s first home NDL fixture of the season is expected to take place at the Pidcock Motorcycles Arena, Beaumont Park on Sunday April 7 (3pm).

The club will also be staging a round of the new National League Riders Development Series individual competition. This will take place on Sunday August 4 (3pm).
