LEICESTER will officially open their new mini track prior to their Bank Holiday Monday home meeting against Oxford (7.30pm).

The training track on the centre-green inside the main circuit was constructed during the winter but has required further weeks to bed in, to the point where it is now ready to have bikes on it.

And there will be a special guest present during the opening ceremony, with the first lap of the circuit to be completed by four-year-old Cruz Harris, who has become something of a social media sensation over the last year.

Cruz is a familiar figure around the tracks on his Revvi bike and has already built up a big following – and on Monday, he will be bringing his Dad Chris along with him to race against the Watling JCB Lions for Oxford!
Lions promoter Stewart Dickson and his regular track team received substantial support over the winter from Workington bosses Andrew Bain and Steve Lawson to get the mini track completed.

And the club will now be in a position to provide opportunities for training sessions not just on the main circuit at the Pidcock Motorcycles Arena, Beaumont Park, but also on the mini track.

Dickson said: “A lot of work has gone into this, and it will be good to see Cruz riding through the ribbon to officially open the mini track, prior to the main event taking place on Monday

“I was working on the mini track last weekend, adding some clay to help it pack in, we’ve got it all mixed in and it’s now solid so we’re ready to go.

“It’s great to have it ready and we can now start looking run practice days on the track.”
